at the no more silence foundation
By LaTrossica Wilson
There are so many different programs and organizations for children that offer great ways to impact lives. However the No More Silence Foundation Center opened in May 2018 right here in the city of Memphis, offering unique ways through the arts to engage children and their families an opportunity that will impact their lives forever. The No More Silence Foundation is a non-profit organization pending as an exempt organization describe in section 501 (C)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Our program also includes an A.R.T.S Summer Camp that is taking place this summer for children ages 4-14. A.R.T.S. stands for A REASON TO SURVIVE. Often time children feel as though they have no reason to live after being faced with adversity. Mrs. Wilson and her team is changing that mentality.
Each week of the A.R.T.S Summer Camp, we offer different themes to help with exposing and educating the campers. The week of June 11-June 15 was Fashion week. On Wednesday, June 13th, we celebrated National Sewing Machine Day and our National Fashion Day.
We invited Memphis’s own Jenni Graham. Ms. Graham is a fashion model, designer, fashion stylist, model coach, creative director, and the CEO of J.Chic Life Style Boutique.
Our goal for that day was to focus on the principals of art elements with designs and fashion. We had our campers to explore through creative areas of fashion using sewing machines, jewelry designs, fabric, patterns, styles, and a fashion show to model their designs down a yellow brick road made of posterboard.
The campers and staff had a ball!
