|The Sum Of Many Parts opening ceremony|
Each day we were picked up and taken to our destination, and returned afterwards to our beautiful hotel. I worked with primary and elementary aged children as well as quilting groups, staff at a social service agency, and a disabled group. To me it was a great exchange of education and artistry, everyone was so open and willing to try something new. After each group I allowed 10-15 minutes for anyone who wanted to share their experience a chance to do so. A good time was had by all.
This is the staff of Gender Development Solution (a social service program working with abused women and children). My trip to China is not one that I will soon forget. It was a lesson and a eye opening experience for all. I know that I am truly blessed and give thanks daily for all of the opportunities that my art exposes me to.
