GRFA’s Rachel Gaudry led the campers through a step-by-step sculpting process, breaking down the shapes and colors of the Blue Dog for the young artists. Lighthouse Louisiana’s Director of Youth Services Andrea Rodriguez shares about the project:
“The kids had a great time making their own personal Blue Dog, some even including a cane and glasses. Art is important to our summer campers because they get to experience making things with their hands regardless of sight. They are able to feel the different shapes and learn ways to put them together to create something wonderful. Our kids also get to share their artwork with family members which is the icing on the cake.”
