A Big Update on Classroom on Wheels - Part 1 (La Venada)

Wow...Through this project so far we have accessed 70+ children and the families. Offering enrichment programs and community-based art projects in low-income neighborhoods. Here's a bit more on each community and project:


[b]La Venada [/b]
We work on a weekly basis with the children of La Venada, a community of 100 families living in tin houses, without even the basics of access to water, electricity etc. The children have participated in workshops spanning jewelry making, recycled sculpture and ceramics. In addition to these visual arts based programs, the youth are also participating in Egyptian Dance and Jung Fu classes! This semester we hope to involve the families to create a tiled mural on the community well.
