Nonprofit organization, the Creativity Shell is launching a community light/craft project for Kingwood, Humble and Atascocita kids called “Sew a Lot of Love – Lights!”
The Creativity Shell is a nonprofit organization on a mission to use creative trades to educate and inspire the next generation of makers. The organization teaches sewing/textile arts and other trades classes to students in their private studios, libraries, schools and shelters that rescue children from homelessness, trauma and human trafficking. Their classes are designed to educate and inspire children by teaching them essential life and practical skills.
The “Sew a Lot of Love – Lights” project will give children the opportunity to sew an outfit on a solar light to create a snowman/woman. Finished solar lights will be displayed in art installations along the center grass median at the front of Kingwood Drive as well as the center grass median on select streets such as Willow Terrace Drive, Woodlands Hills and more from December 9th– January 4th for the community to see.
Residents wishing to participate in the community wide project can contribute in 3 meaningful ways.
