The story behind the notecards:
Fundraising For Our Future
Over forty elementary aged children gathered in the Irmo Community Park to collaborate, paint, and produce art working alongside an artist. The artist shared her journey, her WHY, tools that she uses to create, and her passion with the students. She encouraged the kids to literally “make their mark” in SC Career Kids. Kids were encouraged to freely paint anything and everything that they could imagine. After their individual masterpieces were created, together we complied the paintings to create each notecard image. Kids commented and pointed out their individual contributions to the images. “Hey that’s my orange background.” “That’s Mason’s dinosaur next to Artie’s man.” “My person was turned into angel with someone else splatter painting as wings. That is so cool.”
What started out as our first kick start event, quickly turned into something exceptional. Not only did children “Make their Mark in SC Career Kids” in October 2021, but kids also experienced hands on how bringing everyone’s individual talents to the table creates an exceptional outcome. From the mouths of our SCCK babes, “Painting with our friends was fun. My artwork was cool, and I loved it. But look at how the cards turned out when everyone ideas were together!” Important life lessons being planted growing a collaborative, problem solving workforce.
