Our k2A’s goal was to teach future generations how to reuse things they already own by making them into art pieces and accessories. Materials for the art and the Woodside Queens library made it possible for us to have our workshop. If it wasn’t for Woodside Queens library we wouldn’t have had the opportunity to do the workshop. We would specially like to thank the librarian Mrs.Hallen for making it possible for us to borrow the library’s room, for promoting our flyer for the workshop, and getting more kids to come. We would also like to thank the donors of Materials for the Arts, and Materials for the Arts for letting us get the materials. If it wasn’t for them, we would have been short on the materials and we wouldn’t have been able to make many types of arts and crafts. Finally we would like to thank world savvy leader Daniel Carlton for taking time out of his busy day to take us shopping to Materials for the Art. We would also like to thank our friend, Sharif Arshad, for helping us carry our heavy bags, recording us, and helping us out on the day of our hectic workshop. Without Sharif, Maria and I would have been stressed out. In conclusion if it wasn’t for these people and places our K2A workshop wouldn’t have been this amazing. Our workshop went beyond well. Our audience enjoyed it and learned to reuse things.
The kids that attended the workshop were ages 8-12. They made many things out of all the materials we took to the library. Some of these included journals, bags, jewelry, and instruments. We were glad that the kids enjoyed making things. In the beginning we were scared people wouldn’t show up because the workshop was right after school and it was on a weekday, but more people than expected showed up. We now plan on doing a workshop at the library every year. The library staff in the library enjoyed it so much that they would love us to do many more workshops related to other things!
