ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — About 30 fire, rescue and ambulance vehicles in the Aspen area will be getting a makeover.

The nonprofit group Portraits of Hope says it has approval to transform the vehicles with art created by children in hospitals and schools in the Roaring Fork Valley, Denver, and Los Angeles over the next several months. Hundreds of children will paint panels that will later be installed on the vehicles for display next year.

Portraits of Hope says it works to involve people who are coping with adversity in creative projects as a means of therapy.
