The summer of 2014 has been a productive one. And no, I'm not just talking about the netflix-binge-watching. I'm talking about the volunteering, the reaching out to the dekalb community by way of art, specifically mural painting. I was eagerly approached by my friend, Eric Fuertes, a fulltime 3D foundations Instuctor at NIU, to help advise/paint murals in total of 4 for the Upward Bound College Bridge Summer Camp. http://www.niu.edu/precollegiate/CBP/Index.shtml

We then asked ourselves what could we further do to spread the gospel of art and community in Dekalb? Enter Camp Power, a summer camp for the children of university Village. What an amazing community! The parents are very well connected with one another. The children are well mannered and extremely talented! With the help of the parents and camp counselors, completing the mural in record time was made easy!
Finally, a proud day, the campers graduate and go out in style!
This will indeed be a hard summer to top, on to the rest of the year!
