We are holding an Art Workshop at the DSWD, Home for Girls (4 to 21 years old) who have been abused.
Every Sunday afternoon during May, Cha Cha and some Verbum Dei disciples, have been leading this art workshop, using some of the truths of faith of our theme set.
Our desire is to integrate faith and arts, by sharing with the children the goodness and love of God through art and creativity; helping them gain self-awareness, confidence and appreciation of the preciousness of their life as a valuable gift of God; and letting the children experience, enjoy, learn and discover a sense of connection between life and art.
Here are some observations from the girls attending it, after one of these workshops:
‘This is my life… I don’t want it to be wasted.’
‘I will let light be stronger than the darkness I find in life.’
