Recently after sessions, the girls of Maplewood III had been leaving small works of art behind. This has been a delightful little treat and always makes me smile and think of the uniqueness and creativity of our girls whenever I looked at the works. It also gave me an idea , “What if we were to have a little art show?” I ran it by our cottage’s girls to see if there was interest, and indeed there was!
So, I invited each of the girls in Maplewood III to take the next two weeks and create one or more pieces of art – any medium: paint, clay, poetry, etc. – which is meaningful to them. Additionally, the invitation was extended to the young ladies in Maplewood I & II, whose students sounded interested as well.
We had a small and informal “art show” on Thursday, July 30th to give the girls from each cottage a chance to see one another’s works, and I for one was very excited to see what our young ladies had come up with!
Below are pictures of all the beautiful art that the girls did.
