A Day in Jacmel

By Kathybarbro @KathyBarbro

Tropical storm Emily delayed our plans by a day, but this morning we were off to visit Creation Foundation, a school that cares for 90 kids in the city of Jacmel. All the kids get 3 meals a day, and are schooled and trained so they can go on to become the next generation of Haitian artists. We did some drawing lessons with them, and got lots of hugs and kisses when we left.
Later we went back to the FOSAJ gallery, and were hosted by the director who wanted an impromptu art exchange with his (older) students. So we learned how to mix clay from scratch for paper mâché molds with his kids, and taught some quick drawing and photography lessons with them. Just another amazing day in Haiti!
