Next week, I’ll be launching a Kickstarter campaign for D4RT.

D4RT is a mobile art class that brings workshops and public art projects to impoverished communities all over the world, with its first installment to take place in September of 2011 in Yantaló.

Yantaló is a village with a population of less than 3,000, nestled in the Peruvian Amazon jungle. I’ll tell you more about how I came to love this place and more about D4RT in my video, currently in post-production.

I’m developing a program which I’m immensely excited about – a lesson plan aimed at engaging kids’ curiosity and centered around fantasy, starting with several days of varied exercises and ending with me and my class working together on a very special final project.

We don’t have an exact Kickstarter launch date just yet, so stay tuned!
