Even though we were in a pandemic – we were determined to keep the art happening! But we knew we would have to make some drastic changes since in-person learning was not an option. We shifted our Hoye Wayelo Summers Academy online, supported over 100 kids with art supplies and lunches for a local kids program, and sent out over 300 art kits, snack bags, and Creativity Guides for our Summer Art challenge.
Assembling Art Kits for our Academy students …
Supplies went out to hundreds of kids for the Summer Arts Challenge
Wopila to Ramsey Brown – who was our boots on the ground this year! We could not have done it without her dedication and commitment to the kids!
Uncis: Gramma Pepper and Gramma Mona – made and delivered delicious food to our kids!
Many kids did not have devices or Wifi so we provided as many loaner computers and hots spots as we could get our hands on. Dante got all of our technology running smoothly. Carly and Henri helped prep and deliver supplies!
And of course our amazing teachers …
It was a beautiful and inspirational week of creativity, learning, experimenting, and community. Wopila to all of the awesome people who helped make it happen behind the scenes!
