YOUNITY YOUTH FRESHER WORKSHOP 2009

23 Jul

YOUNG WOMENS LEADERSHIP x YOUNTY x BIG CITY WALL PRODUCTION

All of July the YOUNITY crew has been involved in painting at THE SECRET GARDEN in Bushwick. MAMA from BIG CITY WALLS organized the production, in addition she organized 3 youth workshops with 3 different artists who got down on the wall. TOOFLY, EROTICA, and myself had different schools we were teamed up with to create art with the kids using a FRESHER theme we incorporated on our production at THE SECRET GARDEN. 40 girls from the YOUNG WOMENS LEADERSHIP SCHOOL SUMMER PROGRAM came on a bus from Jamaica Queens to get down and create some art. IT WAS A BLAST!

DAY 1- All the girls got the tour of the wall and we spoke about what YOUNITY does. They were given their task to each create a sketch incorporating what the FRESHER theme means to them. They were then asked to take the best of each sketch and compile it into 1 sketch for that group.
