Understanding the world around you in particular your community is very important when discovering your voice as an individual.
Haitian American Artist, Sophia Domeville creative arts workshop, “Discovering Your Voice”, is used as a format for students to understand self rediscovery, culture, community activism and voice through the power of art.
Each week, Ms. Domeville reminds her students their Voice can be heard through any medium to help change the world and more importantly for the benefit of his/her community.
Take a look at this week’s creative arts workshop at Monroe College, as the topic of “Community” was discussed where each student were asked “What would you love or like to change about your community?”.
Each student were asked to “Think Outside the Box” then given a “6×6 ” canvas panel, paint, no brushes and ink pens in creating a finished collage called a “Community Board”.
Followed by an in depth discussion on how each student can change his/her community.
