Camp Omi The children's stories

During my residency at Art Omi I had the opportunity to meet and work for a day with the children of Camp Omi
I told the children one of the many stories of my grand mother, then I invited the children to draw and write a story about or from their grand mother. Some were very eager to share and perform the tale they had written and so an impromptu show and tell took place. Some children chose to give me their drawings as a thank you gift.

Some children worked on their stories...

.... others took a break
