I am proud to be involved with SilverKite's SPARK Boxes project. SPARK Boxes are arts engagement toolkits specifically designed for older adults and their care partners. Each box contains supplies, instruction cards, and conversation starters to SPARK creativity and connection.
I was approached by Dr. Jen Kulik, founder of SilverKite, to be a contributing artist on this endeavor. For the past 20 years Jen has designed and facilitated arts programs at schools, theater companies, NGOs, and social service organizations. Jen specializes in intergenerational and cross-cultural relationship building through the arts.
Each SPARK Box is designed around a theme. This inaugural SPARK box uses the theme of "nature" in its design, activities and conversation SPARKs, and arts supplies.
My painting, The Naturalist, is printed on the inside of the box! And I created several of the art activities included in this inaugural SPARK box.
