Colored Pencil Project
Carly, Thomas and I participated in The Colored Pencil Project on our last full day in Haiti. We gave out colored pencils and paper for the kids to keep. We gave them the assignment to draw a portrait of themselves and then a portrait of their world, whatever that might look like i.e. family, school, house, tent, church etc. Some of the drawings were comical. Some were pretty. Some were heartbreaking. All of them were very telling of their experience this past year since the earthquake. I was grateful to have participated in this project and with kids that we knew already.
