Art classes in the after-school reading project
Since a year and a half the after-school reading project is up and running. We are receiving support from The Ubuntu Family Initiative. After visiting the project, we worked out a collaboration. The Ubuntu Family supports the after-school reading project with materials. But also with very helpful tutorials of how to make cool drawings. By following their tutorials, the kids can make great looking art works, which makes them feel proud and happy 🙂
The art classes take place once per week. We are always looking for the help of volunteers for this project. Help the children with the their drawings and compliment and encourage them. It really makes a lot of difference for the kids. The volunteers who have been helping out all love the project 🙂
We have now accomplished 3 terms of art and are onto our fourth! The children have created some exceptional work inspired by artists such as Picasso for portraits, Magritte for education, Warhol on the theme of food and others such as Klimt, Klee, Miro and many more! Its has been an absolute joy working with you ! Art should be accessible to all, no matter their circumstances. Next to their help in Peru, the Ubuntu Family has expanded their work to India, Africa and South East Asia. And they are looking forward to continuing our collaboration in the next year!
We would really like to bring this project to another market in Cusco. But we need the help of volunteers to achieve this. In this project there is a lot of space to experiment with your own ideas. Next to the reading and the art classes, we are always open to new ideas and initiatives. You can learn new skills or expand your current skills, while making an active and fun contribution to the learning path of Peruvian kids. We would be happy with your help 🙂
