Another Haiti Art Project

Learning about where you live and what it looks like on a map doesn’t have to be bland and boring. I’m currently planning art lessons for Project HOPE Art’s July trip to Haiti, and plan like to have children make hand colored maps of their country. For accuracy’s sake, they will start with a sheet of watercolor paper that already has a light outline of Haiti printed on it. (I purchased mine at Map Resources.com for just $10.) The printed lines will be traced with a crayon and other details such as mountains, waves and sea life may be added. Watercolor paint is brushed over all. Cities could be added, depending on age and ability.

You can support Project HOPE Art’s latest fundraiser by visiting our Indigogo drive at: www.indiegogo.com/rainbowstohaiti. We just need $600 more to meet our goal – thanks everyone!
