Be like a Sunflower!

For the second LTTA of the Move-On project, the portuguese team prepared a simple gift for all participants, but with a deep meaning. The creative women representing CFPIMM were Lourdes, Elisa and Filomena, and they worked hard! First we chose some logs that were cut in our carpentry workshop (lemon wood and laurel wood). Then it was necessary to sand the surface and cover all imperfections. So, we draw a sunflower using the stencil technique. And we started the great task of painting these pieces of art... It looked like a big industry! Finally, we made the golden outline.... And we wrote the most important word of our project (shine!) and applied a layer of varnish. So, we went to Poland full of shine!!!!!!! And we offer it to everyone so they can be like a sunflower!!

All students used the same image to create their own stencil but did different jobs. It was interesting to think about the characteristics of each season, adjust the colors and their layout on the sheet. The students
