Covenant House- April 5

Current Needs 

  • Lead Artist 
  • Volunteer to take photos and write a blog post to document the event 

The Project 

  • Covenant House would like to increase the types of mediums that their youth are exposed to such as: ceramics, photography, graphic design, etc.

  • They have a large campus with an art room (there is a kiln, but it hasn't been used in a long time). Their youth enjoy many art forms including poetry/spoken word, story telling, painting, and jewelry making.

  • They would like the artist to create a project that connects with the theme of self-empowerment and self-image. They want the youth to see themselves in a positive light. They want them to realize their worth and everything they provide to our community; they are strong, resilient, smart, hard-working, and beautiful.

  • They estimate there will be approximately 10-15 youth involved in each Paint Love project, though they have a capacity of 80 youth in the program.

The Organization 

Covenant House Georgia is much more than a shelter. They provide unconditional love and comprehensive support so that their youth can and will realize their fullest potential. In fact, seeing their potential is our greatest motivation. They are optimistic about the power of a stable, loving environment to inspire a fresh start in their lives. It is a privilege to support their youth during some of their most formative years. Covenant House empowers them to finish high school, start college, gain employment, live independently, and ultimately step out into the world knowing they are prepared to be successful.

 Covenant House Georgia serves 18‑21 year old homeless and runaway youth. They have a shelter and independent living program where they provide youth with a bed, meals, vocational and educational programs, mental health care, hygiene and clothing items, and more. Their goal is to support and prepare the youth so they are able to live successful and independent lives. The youth they serve have faced hardship and trauma such as physical or mental abuse, human trafficking, losing a loved one, or having nowhere to go and sleeping on the streets. 

Volunteer Requirements 

  • All volunteers must be 21 years old or older and have a background check on file with Paint Love. If the volunteer will be working with Covenant House on a recurring basis, there will be additional volunteer requirements.

  • They ask that photos are not taken of the youth without their permission (they must be informed of what the photo will be used for and where it will be posted). Volunteers should not share their contact (phone number or email) or social media information with the youh and should  not receive any youth's contact or social media information.

Current Needs

  • Volunteers to support the project and lead artist 
  • Volunteer to take photos and write a blog post to document and share this event 

About the Project 

This project runs Monday- Friday, during the entire school day (roughly 8 AM- 2PM). 

Artist Brent Coleman will be leading this mural project. The mural design is based a Langston Hughes poem, combining the positive aspirations reflective of the students and the Austell community. To paraphrase the poem "I too Sing America". The centerpiece would be a picture of the school with the Six Flags roller coaster and kids, with the Clarkdale logo. The centerpiece will be surrounded by squares/circles that will allow kids to draw faces or pictures.  We will be working with kids of all grades from the whole school, throughout the week. 

About the School 

Clarkdale Elementary School is a Title I school in Austell, Georgia. From the school: We are focused on teaching and learning ...everyday! Using our SEAMLESS Instructional Framework, we challenge and engage our students to their potential. Our "champion for kids" staff work endlessly to provide quality instruction to help our students meet standards.  We take pride in proving real-life experiences for our entire population. As we move towards STEAM, Clarkdale strives to incorporate a plethora of learning from a variety of mediums.  We are a diverse school with the majority of our students being African-American, twenty-six percent are Hispanic and ten percent white. Many of our students (86%) are economically disadvantaged and receive free or reduced lunch. As a result, they face challenges and obstacles that may impact their educational career.

Kate's Club/High Museum - National Children's Grief Awareness Nov 12

CURRENT NEEDS:

  • Lead Artist(s)
  • A LOT of Volunteers to assist at Piedmont Park AND/OR The High Museum
  • Volunteers to transport the art project from Piedmont Park to The High Museum
  • Volunteer to write a blog post about the event
  • Volunteer to take photographs at the event

THE PROJECT:

We will be partnering with Kate's Club to create a collaborative project around National Children's Grief Awareness Day.  We will start the project at Piedmont Park during Kate's Club Memory Walk and then move to the High Museum to finish the art piece inviting everyone from the community to come out and collaborate for free (The portion at the High Museum will be in conjunction with their free admission day).

The portion of the project at Piedmont Park will go from 10am - 1pm, with set up time TBD.  The portion of the project at the High Museum will go from 1pm-4pm with set up time around noon.  This obviously means we will have TWO teams of people going at one time with a limited group starting at the High and more people joining as we finish at Piedmont Park. 

The theme this month at the High Musuem is “Around the World in 30 Days." Kate’s Club's vision is “A World in Which it is Okay to Grieve."

So, our project will use the theme "Grief is universal". We want to invite the public to make something that would support or connect with the artwork that we are making with the families at Kate's Club. We want to explore the idea of how the world can support each other with love, compassion, and empathy. 

We are not able to use wet paint or chalk with our project at the High Museum, so I (Julie McKevitt) am still figuring out exactly what we are doing for the project.  My initial thought is something like what we did for the #HoustonStrong event (here.)

 

THE ORGANIZATION:

Kate's Club's mission is to empower children and teens facing life after the death of a parent or sibling.
