Project Jericho has been creating in-depth art experiences for at-risk families for nearly fifteen years and I have to say that this was one of my favorite family programs to date!
The week of camp was amazing! Gail was very self-reliant. She came fully prepared to meet our timeline and fully invested in our community. She exceeded my expectations in many ways. The children felt so empowered to be able to work right beside their parents cutting glass and creating art of high quality.
While the art product is important, it is not the most important ingredient in a successful Project Jericho art experience. I have worked with many artists who can produce high quality art but few artists who are as skilled at teaching his or her art form to our families. Gail showed our families what it means to be passionate about what you do and she had faith that they would absolutely be successful.
