Well– NYC was an amazing trip! While going to UPS for my Spanish Visa, I stumbled upon fire station #8- I needed to find a firefighter truck to sketch for a project. The pieces were placed together nicely.

Yesterday I went to the Latin American Community Center (LACC). I’m the youth programs volunteer art teacher. Once a week I go in, provide some tips, then let them do whatever. Once they have their idea of what they want to create, they have at it and ask me advice on their piece. They really like how I’m not telling them what to do- and so do I. I like to see their own creativity and provide them tips that they can choose to take or leave; experimentation and doing your own thing has a lot to do with art. I love to see what they can do. One girl who is doing an awesome cherry blossom tree over a river, said something really cool yesterday:

“Earth without art is eh.”

August 15th, if you are in the Wilmington/Delaware area, I encourage you to go to the LACC’s Youth Art Show and check out what these kids can do! There will be photography as well as spoken word (which is really cool) there as well.

Come on out to the LACC Art Show!!! These kids are really talented!!!

Tuve mucho éxito durante mi viaje a Nueva York. Pedí mi visado, lo que debo recibir entre 1-3 semanas, y fue informada que escucho música horrible y debo escuchar otros cantantes en español, jaja. Me tropecé con la estación de bomberos número 8 en camino al UPS para el visado (tengo una consignación para pintar algo de bomberos de Nueva York y con la gracia de Dios, me guió a ese lugar).

Ayer fui al Centro de Comunidad de Latinoamericano; soy maestra de arte para los jóvenes. Una vez a la semana, me voy coo voluntaria, les doy consejos y hablo un poco sobre una técnica, y luego, ¡hacemos arte! A ellos les gustan que no les diga qué hacer y yo también. Quiero darles ánimo de hacer arte de si mismos; el arte no debe ser tan estricto o preciso de lo que he tenido en clases formales; esto asfixia la creatividad de los jóvenes… disminuye las posibilidades de donde llega el arte de uno…. (jaja es obvio que tengo una opinión muy fuerte sobre la enseñanza de arte; clases de arte estrictas tiene su lugar, pero es tema para otro post).

¡Ve el flyer y ven al espectáculo del arte de los estudiantes el 15 de agosto!
¡Hasta pronto!
