About this product
- DescriptionHave fun exploring the first book in our Kids Share Workshops series, as we bring children living in rural India together with those living in the U.S. through an exchange of art and ideas! Here kids from both cultures share a bit of their lives, dreams and the things they care about. During the 2008-2009 school year, Kids Share Workshops and Publishing Inc. (KSWP) visited schools in Montpelier and Waterbury, Vermont, while also sending a workshop package to the Tibetan Children's Village in Bylakuppe, India. In each location, kids created visual art representing their lives; they also communicated across the world via Skype, getting a valuable glimpse into each other's communities. Though geographically distant, together these children co-created the first Kids Share Book-and became published illustrators and authors in the process! Join them on this cross-cultural journey of exploration through children's words, photographs and illustrations.
- Author BiographyAbout Kids Share Workshops and Publishing Inc. Kids Share Workshops and Publishing Inc. is a not-for-profit arts enrichment program and custom publisher that recognizes each child as a vibrant and creative individual, and strives to awaken the author and artist inside of them. We connect volunteers from professional backgrounds to youth from around the world through the co creation of visual and literary art, with team-building principles and cross-cultural understanding at the heart of our curriculum. Our mission is to inspire creativity and self-expression in children through arts enrichment; to foster understanding through cross-cultural activities; and to empower young people through education. As a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Kids Share Workshops and Publishing Inc. is facilitated by a team of volunteer teachers, artists, therapists and community groups who work with us to tailor each workshop to its specific location. These volunteers are usually recruited directly from the host community. All Kids Share Workshops are free to communities impacted by devastating events or suffering from economic turmoil. Sponsors are sought to offset the cost of supplies and some administrative expenses, as are families willing to host directors for the duration of the workshop. We also encourage support from local educational and youth-oriented non-profit organizations.
