LaGRANGE — Miss Troup County Paula Smith visited Hollis Hand Elementary School recently and spoke to the third grade students about her platform, art therapy.

Smith gave each of the children a coloring book called “A Roadmap to Survival.”​ She and her mom created the book to help children learn how coloring and creating art could help them sort through their emotions ​using ​outlets like dancing, singing, playing an instrument, writing a story or cooking.

Smith also answered students’ questions and sang for them. ​
