I was invited to do an art workshop with some lovely girls from a summer camp called girls of Destiny. The camp was created by Pat Chacha. She is so passionate about serving the youth in our community; I remember sitting in on a few scholarship training sessions where she encouraged all of us to apply for grants. But back to the story at hand; Mid-July rolled around and auntie Pat had invited me to paint with her Girls of Destiny camp. I thought back to an exercise I did with a grade 5 class years ago, called Record Remix.
So when I arrived, I set up a little inspiration table so they could pull colours, imagery, ideas from it. I placed some paintings, objects, fabrics on it and we set out the paints.
Hopefully these photos show how much I enjoyed the process of creating together. Here's one of the gorgeous colour-mixed palettes. This itself could be art!
