Wrapping Up "Perseverance!"

July has arrived, which means it's time to wrap up our June life skill - Perseverance!
To finish out this life skill, youth in one art workshop created a Sculpture Museum. Each youth was given a random bag of assorted materials, and had to create a sculpture using only those materials. Youth realized they would need to be able to persevere while creating their sculptures, whether it be in coming up with an idea or finding a way to incorporate all of the items in their bags. At the end of the workshop, youth put their sculptures on display and moved around the room to look at all the other sculptures - creating a very interesting Sculpture Museum!
Youth were excited at the idea of creating something out of nothing, and they learned the importance of persevering even when a project becomes difficult!
“Perseverance is failing 19 times and succeeding the 20th.” - Julie Andrews.
