RUBEN R RAMIREZ—EL PASO TIMES Danashiya Pritchard and Andrea Gates-Ingle of Creative Kids are all smiles as they discuss their upcoming trip to the White House and meeting with First Lady Michelle Obama. Pritchards painting “The Vase of Flowers,” will hang in the White House. The El Paso program Creative Kids is one of 12 programs nationally to receive the President’s Commission on the Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award today at the White House. The award is for Project AIM, or Arts in Motion, which is a visual art program for pediatric oncology patients at Providence Children’s Hospital.
