Fusion Arts & Service Camp - Murals

We led an awesome camp for middle school girls last week as part of the Harpeth Hall School Summer Program.  Each day we went to a different place to volunteer utilizing the girl's passion for arts & crafts.

Here's a picture of some of the murals we painted for the YMCA's preschool camp.  100+ children speaking 8+ languages will be coming to the YMCA to learn reading skills and get ready for school.

Corey Burton, a very artistic Y staff person, drew the images, and the girls painted the silhouette posters.  We were thrilled with the way the 11 posters turned out!
The activity led to conversations about the assets of creative activities and support.
