Captivating Kids Through Art

It’s been two days at Destiny Academy and already we’ve held four workshops, gotten a large portion of the mural completed, and painted the inside walls of the main campus compound.

The kids that were selected to participate in the workshops love art and have a natural talent. It’s difficult for them to practice because supplies are scarce and their families do not see it as a good use of their time. With Lennon’s instructions the students' enthusiasm for art has grown to a whole new level. It is clear that with a little encouragement and decent materials these kids would be able to express their creativity through art. Check out the photos below: 

We are down to the final days of the campaign. Our hope is to leave behind supplies so that the school can continue what you have helped start. Please spread the word about this art education project and encourage your friends to give. Thank you!
