Creative Kids.

Light and Leadership hosted an art exposition and contest this past Saturday, featuring 44 pieces of art from our talented students ages 6-13. Students were invited, along with their families, to come out and vote for their favorite pieces. We welcomed some parents, friends of our participants (who are eager to sign up next year) and several of our art students. Snacks and refreshments were served... this was the real deal.

Special thanks to Meghan Resler, resident art teacher at LLI for putting this Expo together! Thanks as well to all the LLI volunteers for coming out to help and vote. Awesome.

Puppet Crazy!!! (Part II)

Late last month, English students in Zone Z, with the help of their ever-creative volunteer teachers, put together a puppet show and performed for other LLI students and families! Featuring a pirate theme, students used their puppets (created in a previous LLI art workshop) to tell a story using Spanish and English.

As a treat, these same students will be going on a field trip this Saturday to check out a puppet show in Lima. Awesome!

Published by Lara DeVries on behalf of Light and Leadership. Special thanks to Whitney Reynolds, Meghan Resler and Vinnette Harrington for the hard work on the puppet show :). Thanks to Valentin Salgado for the photos.
