it has gone through to achieve that beauty.
The theme for this year's event was Asia. My contribution was to create a collaboration between students and the volunteers from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine.
Close to 100 students learned about the concepts taught at the College. They took their new found insights and added their artistic touches to the art piece creating the abstract painting you see above. The intriguing part of this piece is the variety of symbols and techniques that the students resonated with after they learned more about Chinese herbs and practices. The painting will be presented and installed in the school on October 5th during one of OCOM's opening ceremonies. We know that the students of OCOM will appreciate the detail and energy of this wonderful collaborative work.
Graham paints , a generous local company that produces small batches of high quality paints was kind enough to donate their incredible acrylic paint for the project. In fact they were so generous that the left over paint will be used in the many community projects we embark on this year.
