art adventures in india!
In 2009 I spent six weeks in India, traveling and volunteering around the country with a group of other young people. We spent three of those weeks at the Faith Outreach school and children's home started by John and Della Bridge in Jharsuguda, Odisha (www.faithoutreach-orissa.com). I was hooked, and immediately started planning my return. Two years later, in September of 2011, I came back and spent three months teaching art to over 600 amazing kids! The students grew in skill and creativity at an astounding rate, despite minimal materials and facilities. I went back again in 2012 (you can read about it here) and am in the midst of planning my next trip for 2015.
You can donate to the project here--all donations go towards purchasing art supplies for the kids!
