Adams Creek Cohousing hosted 10 kids for a mixed media collage event. The group will host an informational open house on Sept. 8; see listing, this page, for more information, or visit www.adamscreekcohousing.com.

On Aug. 25, 10 kids attended an Art for Kids event with Jordan Kim, a local mixed media collage artist at Found and Rewound. This event was hosted by Adams Creek Cohousing, a cohousing community being designed in Hood River that has developed a vision for a safe and supportive community for families. 

The art project was a mixed media exercise beginning with a blank canvas. The kids added some thoughtful words of encouragement and support such as “You can do it” and “Be brave,” said a press release. Several layers of writing, tissue paper, paint and finally a stencil figure were applied to the canvases.  The kids learned about different artistic materials, collage, warm and cool colors, layering, sharing and letting go of perfectionism.
