Art Exhibit at the Paint Spot

From July 5 to August 31 the Paint Spot will display commissioned paintings and papier maché from the talented children in Jacmel, Haiti. There are over 60 works of art to enjoy, some of which will also be included in the Fringe production.

A big thank-you to Kim and the Paint Spot for all of their support during this project.

Thank You!

The sun came out today enough for the sun to be finished and to take some team photos.

Thank you very much to Art Creation Foundation for Children for our extraordinary experience in Jacmel. We loved working with you …  and we look forward to a long friendship!

Learning More About Haiti

Today it rained – so we stayed inside and the girls tried to teach us a bit of Kreyol:
Lapli tonbe jodia (Today it is raining)
Kouman ou ye? (How are you?)

And we learned more about geography with the making of maps.

Papier Mache Monday: Part II

We had a bit more to learn about making a papier mache mold. One of the teachers, Gerard Dumé, helped repair our beautiful sun mold that cracked over the weekend. We look forward to seeing the kids make and paint some suns soon.
