SCI Germany are looking for volunteers to take part in their online International Art Project. 

Project Dates: 04 March 2022 to 18 March 2022 

Volunteers Needed: 2 

SCI INTERNATIONAL ART PROJECT

Description: During the pandemic, SCI Germany carried out two art projects in Germany. Now they are getting creative internationally! First, project volunteers will meet online before going out into nature to look for natural materials, or individually work artistically at home.  Volunteers paint, write, draw, glue and photograph with simple materials and media. They will use water colours, pencils, old newspapers, papers, glue, natural materials and their mobiles.  

Time Commitment: There will be a kick-off meeting on March 4th from 5-7 pm German Time. Further meetings are on March 9th, on March 14th, and March 18th, for 2 hours each. Volunteers can continue their project work individually in their own time, but this will be flexible.  

Type of Work: Volunteers will work outdoors and indoors in a creative way. For the joint as well as the individual work, you will receive advice and inspiration for your work. The project will put volunteers’ creations on a cloud or a Padlet, sharing them with each other.  

Study Themes: Community, Nature, Environmentalism, Art, Creativity
