Making Paper – Agasozi Community Workshhop


The latest workshop  held in Red Rocks was more of practical nature. The aim  of this workshop was to teach children how to recycle old newspapers and other useless  paper, turning it into reusable material.

The process of making paper is easy and everybody can make it – if you want to try recycling old newspapers at home, see instructions here. We have used frame method. Since I always update you with pictures, here is how we did it.

If you are in Rwanda, feel free to stop by in our art center where you can join us in participating with my art workshops. If you are an artist, you are also welcome to share your skills with our children. They are eager to learn!

How Would You Really Enjoy Spending Your Life?


What would you like to do if money were no object?

Today I came across this beautiful and inspirational video  narrated by English philosopher Alan Watts.. and cant help myself not to post it here as it is very uplifting and makes you think about our life, our desires, our goals…

I want to share with you.. Specially if you are an artist – take time and watch.

 Life of an  artist is unpredictable, sometimes I have money, sometimes I don’t. But this never forced me to do something else as I believe in myself, and I knew from childhood that I want to paint and being an artist is my way of life.

 So, all artists out there, if you are struggling with some temporary problems or are in any kind of doubts about your future, – take your time and enjoy the video.

We all need a piece of inspiration from time to time.
