為了參與嚮光協會在台東舉辦的第二次工作坊,並與新馬蘭部落可愛的孩子們見面,許多大朋友從台灣各地跋涉到台東。看到部落領導人郭幼慈在部落中心舉辦這麼多精彩的活動,給予我們很多啟發。這次我們將專題工作坊與他們的年度種樹活動結合。

Many Big Friends made the journey from different parts of Taiwan to meet in Taitung for Bright Side Project’s second workshop with the great kids of the ShinMaLan Community. It has been such an inspiration to see the passion of community head  YoChi in bringing so many wonderful events to the community center and we tied our workshop with the annual tree planting activity.

這一次,大自然不僅給我們靈感,還以最天然的形式提供了素材。當Ichi老師為我們唸故事的時候,所有大小朋友聚在一起;當我們在悶熱的太陽底下行走時,蘇菲老師為我們介紹這個區域的植物以及分享知識。小朋友們都非常積極地撿拾樹葉、樹枝、石頭以及其它自然素材好完成他們的曠世巨作。素材收集完畢之後,小朋友先以素描打底,設計如何運用他們收集的材料轉化成藝術創作。

Thus this time, nature served as not only our inspiration but also our workshop materials in their most natural setting. All friends gathered around while Teacher Ichi read to us a story and as we walked out into the sweltering heat Teacher Sophie introduced some facts on the trees and botany in the area. Kids were enthusiastic, picking up leaves, twigs, stones, and other items in preparation for their masterpieces. After gathering the items, kids made sketches on how to piece what they gathered into art.

我們在戶外組合這些美麗的素材,沒有沾到油漆或勾到線。它們靜靜等著自然分解之後回歸大地。小朋友們也學習如何用樹葉製作書籤。大自然以它各式各樣的形式供給我們一切所需—食物、遮蔭、藝術…以及生命! 由於最近颱風所帶來的災情,我們希望所有人都能與自然共處,並對於台東和其他災區的朋友發出慈悲心。

The beautiful objects were then assembled outside, unscathed by paint or strings. They were left to return to compose and return to nature. Kids also learned how to create bookmarks from leaves. Nature in all its diversity can provide us with so much from food, shade, art, and more – life! In light of the recent catastrophe wrought by the typhoon, we hope that everyone can work with Nature and also show compassion to all our friends in Taitung and other affected areas!

我們的午餐是英式鬆餅披薩,上面撒著純素的起司以及蔬菜配料、很酷的青醬沙拉以及現打新鮮西瓜汁。謝謝 A Well Fed World 的贊助!

Our quick lunch was English muffin pizzas with vegan cheese and vegetable topping, a cool pesto salad, and blended fresh watermelon juice. Thank you to  A Well Fed World for their support for our vegan meals!
