Get to Know brings creative fun to Vansville Extreme Teens

A good time was had by all as we began our GTK Nature Mask project at Vansville Community Center last Friday evening. 
Thank you Arlene Celestine for creating the vision! 
We had 9 teens participate and each one cast the face of a friend in the group. Next week we will envision ourselves as part of Nature! And design self portrait masks.
Because of course we ARE part if of an interdependent web of life right?!
Can't wait!

Get To Know Rocks the Hispanic Festival Today!

Get to Know had a booth @PGParks Hispanic Festival today.
It was off the hook!
So many families out in nature participating in creative action!

GTK had 4 great @PGParks volunteers working with me and those young women  were awesome!
Could not have done it without them!
We helped 120 Festival participants create gorros in 3 hours time!

The community overwhelmed us and when the hats were gone we started making head pieces from the scraps!
Hot music, great food and absolute FUN promoting @GettoKnow in our North county community!
