What did I like about the project: I liked meeting all of the people and the kids who lived there.
What would you do differently: I would like to not have it so late at night because some of the kids got tired.
Think about if you would or would not do the project again and why: Yes I would do it again because doing art is a fun thing to do and you can meet new people. The kids looked forward to seeing us.
