One of our first workshops introducing the world of advertising to the kids! The best thing is we had so many new faces, not just with the volunteers, but many of the children as well. It’s always so nice that even after a year of workshops at ChingChuan, new faces appear. I love having people come to get to know each other and spend time together.

We kicked off with some 3D renderings of an outline of hands. This was psychedelically cool and it’s so easy to start – just an outline of the hand and slight “bump” or “rise” (think Joy Division Unknown Pleasures) that all of the volunteers themselves were pretty eager to create one. I’m actually thinking of working on a more in-depth 3D workshop because of this – any teachers?

Lunch was taken thanks to a mouthwatering masterpiece that was magically created yet again by our Kitchen Table sponsor SALADAY. The corn soup was gone in an instant, really warming us up in the cold weather. This vegetarian meal of pasta and salad gave us an extra shot of energy for the next 4 hours!

Clay and paper plates became our weapon of choice for the advertisements. We split into groups and kids were given a choice of products to create a “paper plate poster” along with a slogan to present it to everyone. I was selected to join in a group and we selected SAVION WIPES (wet wipes). Asking what we these could be utilized for, I received a continuous non-stop chorus of “wiping behinds” – so we created a bathroom scene!

The day concluded with hot chocolate plus croissant snacks after a brisk nature walk. Another wonderful workshop, thank you so much to our new teacher Ivy Hsu!
