Character survival kits — almost complete!

Week 4 of my artist-in-residence/art therapy program at a local centre for teens is complete, and I have more photos to show of the character survival kits we’re building.

Most students are now concentrating on the insides of the boxes, adding a few extra odds and ends and figuring out who they want to actually store their items. I picked up some floral foam and, in many cases, we’re using that as a storage base. Some students, however, are using other means, like moss.

I’m really loving this project. Each of these is like a character’s life in a box . . . it’s easy to imagine stories springing forth from these.
