This week on Thursday 24th at Urban Light- an organization that works with teenage boys between the ages of 14-24 who are at risk of being trafficked and sexual exploitation- Raii and myself were in charge of the workshop and we planned a new project focusing on abstract art.
I believe this workshop worked well everyone contributed and painted a section, using various different colours and brush stroke techniques. One boy even decided to use his fingers and was using small bits of tissue paper for different effects, which was really impressive.
At the end the boys all came together to try and place all the sections in their correct places to recreate the 2 photos. They were better than me at this, they could quickly identify where all the lines connected and similar shapes that match. It was a successful workshop.
|The final result!|
