Pamela Pennington Studios and the Ronald MacDonald House at Stanford
Pamela Pennington Studios was one of the four dozen interior designers who donated their services to create the interiors of the newly developed Ronald McDonald House expansion at Stanford. The new House is truly a beautiful and inspiring example of giving back that shows the compassion and generosity of our community.
Designers created 67 new rooms for families with critically sick children to call their home away from home. Pamela used examples of art from Paintbrush Diplomacy to create two warm and welcoming rooms. One colorful piece from India was enlarged into a wall covering and a selection of children’s work from other parts of the world were also displayed.
We are so proud to have our international students’ work housed in such an iconic institution where they will create an atmosphere of healing and care for these families.

Paintbrush Diplomacy is teaming up with HUD’s Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships to develop a photography workshop for middle-schoolers across the nation. Using a variety of technology and mediums, the workshop encourages students to consider their identities and relationships. By examining their role as community members and world citizens, kids will learn how to think and talk about cultural differences, as a first step toward reducing discrimination.
