On Monday in Women Empowerment we started what I hope will be a whole week with the theme of creativity and expression. Because of some of the restrictions on the mural we’re making, the women haven’t been able to be as involved as I originally envisioned, and it hasn’t been as much of a creative project for them as it is a gift to the center and the community and a statement about what we do. Hopefully this week we can make up for that with different creative projects.
On Monday, we started with an activity of expression just using the materials we have on hand (some blank paper and colored pencils) and we told the women an abstract word, “Love”, and asked them to draw what it means to them.
