Mundo Lindo starts up again!
Mundo Lindo has started up again for the school year!
The 4th & 5th graders are 'nominated' by their teachers, and given applications to join Mundo Lindo. The class is limited to 20 kids. We had 22 registered before class...and another 9 kids showed up, applications in hand. So, we had 31 students!!
Thirty one kids. That's a record! Gee, do you think there's a need for a free after school art class? We didn't and won't turn anyone away. Look at these wonderful, talented, sweet kids!
We drew and painted in watercolors, from the birds and flowers I brought in.
Thank goodness, Tomoko Kuta, Director of the Education Department, was on hand to help, along with my husband, Don. Did I mention, 31 kids?
And, with extra paper, the kids made a little sketchbook to take home.
You gotta love this. He titled his book himself.
We have a new volunteer, Eric, the older brother of one of the students. He's in the 8th grade.
Mundo Lindo is a free, after school art program, held on Thursdays from 3-5pm every week through out the school year, for 4th & 5th graders in Escondido, CA attending public schools. It's held at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido.
Mundo Lindo is a grant and donation funded program, and we really can use use some additional financial support. If you can, please donate here.
