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.
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.
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!
