One person alchemizes cardboard into a hat shaped like a boat.
Another glues gills onto a fish sculpture.
A third cuts, slices, and hot glues pieces of cloth to make an intricate flag.
These people are not kids; they’re adults. Extremely accomplished, talented adults. I’ve been invited to join them on a 5 day adventure of creativity and community off the coast of Newfoundland. Over the past two days, I’ve told stories around a campfire, lead the group in an opening circle, and seen some of the most stunning landscape I’ve ever encountered.
So far, it’s been great. Until this detour into art-making.
