Dreams Presents

I’m currently taking classes at a nonprofit afterschool program in Wilmington called Dreams, where kids can take art classes and develop confidence and social skills. I take metalsmithing and upcycled furniture design this year, and in the past 4-5 years of being a part of dreams, I’ve taken sewing, music video production, recycled art, and almost 3 semesters of metalsmithing and jewlery design. I even got to make and model clothes for the Wilmington Fashion Week last year as a part of my sewing class. As you can see, this program offers a wide variety of opportunities and experiences, and being a nonprofit, it’s hard for them to do this without some source of funding. So, they hold a charity dinner and show every year, usually featuring the performing artists singing and dancing, I’ve never taken a performing arts class with dreams before, however, this year they decided to feature the visual artists work in the show as well. I got to walk onstage wearing a necklace and bracelet that i’d made in class, along with 2 of my good friends Nyla Mae and Nhyderi. I had a great time, and people loved our jewlery and even asked us for autographs. For a video of the whole show, you can go to the link below.
