CAV GHANA 2013, MY EXPERIENCE
Every child has some artistic ability and with the right environment and guidance they can discover their inner creative genius. CAV GHANA 2013 was another given opportunity to help the kids develop their artistic talents and a chance to help make a difference and to be a part of progressive community. I am proud to be part of the team and the project where we hosted more than hundred kids to a week “SUMMER ART CLASSES”. The classes run between 12th and 17th of August, 2013 with a great team of nine creative instructors and facilitated classes in ballet (dance), traditional African dance drama, and visual arts.
Creative skills help children to cope with the change, communicate successfully and have great ideas, and more to that I believe Art changes lives. It is both a powerful means of expression and a recognized means of therapy. Art engagement is a rewarding platform to promote children's development and well-being such as providing them with a creative means of expression.
This year summer Art classes at the Village of Hope Orphanage, Ghana was incredible success. Many thanks to the wonderful team leader, Mai, you’ve been my inspiration many times and has always been a great time working with you. I look forward to be part of more of such project in no distance time, maybe soonest, as I am so passionate about children’s talent development with a deep desire to inspire an artistic future in a child.
