Basketball teams enjoy colorful morning with special needs children

The Binghamton University men's and women's basketball teams spent several hours at the Magic Paintbrush Project workshop in Johnson City talking, painting and laughing with special needs youngsters from Broome County. Players from the two teams were each paired up with a developmentally disabled youngster and together the pairs created drawings, prepared the canvas floor for interactive artwork and ultimately enjoyed a free-for-all paint experience. The Magic Paintbrush Project was started in 2005 by Jennifer O'Brien and is a non-profit organization that facilitates therapy through artistic expression. After coordinating the activities amid a sea of participants, families and media, O'Brien was drenched with a paint shower by the teams (see photo gallery below), who had already doused each other in a rainbow of colors.
