Half a dozen children who are active at Washington DC Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington were treated to a unique arts and crafting experience with instructor and artist Nina Benton.
The children worked with tile to create mosaic pieces of artwork on plywood. Mrs. Benton showed the children how to use simple grout as an adhesive and how to place their multi-colored tiles into unique designs on the wood.
The Boys and Girls Club participants were encouraged to also enjoy the country setting for their half day outside of the city setting of Washington DC into the bucolic beauty of rural Virginia. The children communed with nature-- hiking and adventured with each other through the tall blue grass at Sunny Hill Farm up to the Blue Ridge Mountain overlook. It was a stellar afternoon that produced big smiles and fabulous art for the children to bring home to their families.
The Rost Foundation is looking for art instructors who would create an arts and crafts project for another group of children set to come out for a day of art in the country this winter and spring 2019. Please send CV's and inquiries to Rynthia.email@example.com
