Calendario Familiar 2020

  Qué fue lo que se interpuso en el camino?  What was interposed in your journey?
An answer to that: language barriers, lack of resources, fear, lack of self esteem. In my early 20's I was in a toxic relationship and it took me years to overcome and exit that pattern, as it shown in the illustration.
 

Calendario Familiar 2020

The project task,  to create a family calendar  to engage healthy relationships in WA. based on inspirational quotes or affirmations in Spanish created by professional Latina Artists in Seattle. Not only I get to collaborate with local artists but also through our art we spread the message of Self love and care. This calendar was sponsor by WA. State Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

Somali Books

Seattle has the second largest Somali population in the country and many of the children attending  Seattle Public Schools dont have Somali language early education books.

 From2016-2019, I facilitated illustration workshops for Somali families to create their own books.
This project was entire led by them in terms of context and needs for their community

A partnership with Seattle Public Schools, Seattle Public Library, Seattle Housing Authority and Somali Task Force. The Somali Day is celebrate every year in Seattle.

From 2017-2019 Students of Cedar Elementary School,  Edmonds Arts Commission and Lynwood Parks and Recreation combined efforts to display permanent Public Art made by youth.  where 5th and 6th graders  created pieces of artwork during an Art Residency. The final pieces are display in vinyl wraps around utility boxes

During a 6 week Arts in Residency, students from 5th and 6th grade explored different mediums to create a number of illustrations.
The result, a collage of students artwork depicting Spring Nature: bugs, flowers, trees, etc. 

In 2019, we draw traditional Mexican  bottle soda pop, and that became the collage for a third utility box. The illustration later on became a personal inspiration to create my own 'Jarrito' paintings.
