Yesterday I collaborated with Urban Harvest Houston & Urban Philanthropy to lead an Earth Day art workshop for the 2nd graders participating in the Urban Harvest Houston gardening program at Dogan Elementary School. It was my first time partnering with Urban Harvest. I learned so much about what Urban Harvest is doing to educate & empower youth. It's great!
Creating outside near Dogan Elementary's garden with the little gardeners was beautiful, inspiring & compelling. They were so proud! I am thankful to have had the opportunity to create to create Earth Day Gratitude tiles with the little artists. them. It was definitely one for the books!
I hope life will provide more opportunities for me to partner with programs working to empower, inspire & build up the youth in our city. The arts are essential to this type of work and I look forward to helping young people exercise the creative muscles that are needed to imagine & create a more beautiful, just and good world for all.
Take a look at our time together...
