Set Pieces: Children’s Art

The little pictures that will be featured in the story were created by five children from around the FOSAJ neighbourhood. The children were told the story – and how their pictures were being used – and voilà. The drawings are both charming and hilarious. Especially the drawing of the one little girl wearing turquoise and orange; she could definitely stop traffic!

Artists: Marcus, Samara, Herlandie, Herlande, Tachnaica

Characters: The Elephant

The elephant is the star of what will be such a fantastic and joyful scene in the story. Djecilia was giving carte blanche in painting the elephant – and the result is very flamboyant. You wouldn’t miss that elephant coming down the street.

Set Pieces: The Spiders

The spiders had to be designed from scratch with new clay models. And we were very, very fortunate to have some of the senior artists with FOSAJ  step in and help with the papier mache spiders.   Children from the neighbourhood did the painting of the spiders; the colours and designs chosen by the kids are very much in keeping with the joyful feel of the scene in which they will be featured.

Background: Port-au-Prince Cityscape (1)

Bruno created this cityscape of PAP as quite a clean background; allowing for real attention for the activity in the foreground which is very chaotic. Prince Luc stepped in and did the detailing on this painting. (We are honoured!)
