Kibera Art Camp- Day 2


On the second day of camp my class “graduated” from just learning about shading and practicing, to working on our mural.

We discussed heroes, and I asked the children to define what a hero is to them… the characteristics of a hero and who some of these people are in their life.

We then introduced the two heroes that we would be doing portraits of, Mother Theresa and Wangari Mathai and taught the kids a bit about these two people’s lives and how they demonstrated love in their life.

The children were each given a square which was part of the portrait of one of these heroes (morning class did Wangari Mathai and afternoon class was Mother Theresa).

Each child shaded their square according to the portrait picture so that when we put the squares together a face would form!
