Art & Soul - NuStar Energy

NuStar Art & Soul

On Saturday, October 20, NuStar Energy employees joined CASA Advocates, youth and staff to create some amazing art pieces.  This project provided an alternate volunteer experience for individuals from NuStar who were interested in positively impacting the lives of abused and neglected children in Bexar County.

NuStar Energy continues to be extremely supportive of CASA, as well as being a huge part of San Antonio’s overall philanthropic efforts.  Mr. Bill Greehey, Chairman of the NuStar Board of Directors, and Curt Anastasio, NuStar CEO, both have an unwavering passion to help our community flourish.


This particular Art & Soul was centered on a fall theme. The project was a multistep activity including sponge painting, coloring and water coloring. NuStar volunteers interacted directly with our CASA children, making this event truly beneficial to both parties. Each child walked away with one of their creations while leaving the other as a gift to CASA.


“The Art & Soul event provides a safe, nurturing environment where the children can express themselves and have a chance to be creative. With all the expectations and uncertainty in their young lives, the children somehow know they are among friends. They really are made to feel special at the event. It is something just for them.  I think Art & Soul gives them an opportunity to be celebrated and proud of their art...”
-Cathy Hamilton, CASA Volunteer Advocate
