Community Mural Project in Vietnam

Dear Friends of Our Rock-Paper-Scissor's Art Program,

We hope that everyone is doing well as we head into winter! Time has flown by, and we are almost through another year. That being said, we want to share with you a couple of great things that took place in Vietnam while we were there this summer. We were especially lucky to meet Christine, a mural artist from Kentucky who came along with us on the trip this year.

Christine wanted to do a community mural project with the kids and our staff. The whole project took about three weeks, from first creating the design on paper with the input of our local staff and summer volunteers, sketching it on the wall, having the kids paint it, and Christine spending about a week putting on the final touches!

The photo above is of the main wall of the mural with some of our students in front of it, and the rest of the photos are of the kids painting. The woman pictured represents all Vietnamese women, strong, beautiful and powerful. As you can see the woman in the painting is wearing a phoenix around her neck, and according to Vietnamese belief, the phoenix represents peace, grace and happiness.

It was quite a fun project, and the kids loved helping out. At the end of the trip we had our annual string orchestra concert with our music students and a gathering at the mural wall along the street. Oh yes and some fun Virginia Reel street dancing up and down the street in front of the mural. The kids (and us!) had a great, great time that night! We are really hoping that Christine will get the grant she plans on applying for to go back to Vietnam and do more with the kids!

Thank you all for supporting the kids in our art program, we have some fantastic young artists rising! They so appreciate your support!

Sara
