We've had some fantastic work produced in Phase 2 by the X-Ray groups and much of it went beyond the art kits and sketchbooks, supplied to them on every phase. There were some really dynamic pieces involving not only the venturers but the local partners as well. After the Nicaraguan road trip which myself, Alice, Jess and Vanessa undertook, X-Ray 8 in San Ramon took to the task of continuing with the mural on the pre-school, which was started when we visited them a couple of weeks earlier. With the school children, the group created a beautiful mural consisting of a large butterfly with all of their handprints in and around the painting.
X-Ray 10 made a beautiful social map of the community, detailing their lives during their time at Miraflor. It included some fantastically detailed pictures of their respective houses and the characters that live in them. In Cabo Blanco, X-Ray 6 finished their path with wonderfully decorated rocks, lining the new Alberth Ingalls trail. The 600 meter path will be the prettiest in Costa Rica, for sure!
Continuing on the theme of International Women's Day, X-Ray 7 worked with one of the homestay Mums, Sylvia, on some wonderful drawings depicting life in Achuapa. The group also used art as a means of learning Spanish and teaching English to the children in the community. PM Emma drew some beautiful images.
Below is a roundup of theirs and others achievements over 19 days of second phase- good job guys!
