World Wide Art Show

IMG_6180Yesterday we met with the Cheery Education Centre in Nairobi to share art across classrooms. The children on both sides created, colored, and shared art that they had made previous to the meeting. Each child was given time to share their work and talk about the colors and object chosen. This gave us all a great opportunity to use strong communication skills, work on public speaking, and get to know each other better!

One interesting thing I noticed throughout the session is that the children are beginning to feel like it is normal to talk with kids around the world. Amazing! I love that they are beginning to feel more comfortable communicating online and that they are growing up with creative ideas in their heads. In today’s world, it can be normal to start your day off chatting with friends in Kenya!
