Kite Flying!

Posted by Jason King on Nov 03 2020 at 12:52PM PST

During the week of October 20 – 23, WPS hosted two Guest Zoom sessions with the Education Team of De la Gente, a non-profit coffee cooperative located in Antigua, Guatemala. In the first session, IB Art students learned how geography, politics, and the weather have all played a role in the coffee we drink each morning and were introduced to several works of art that inform us of these issues. The IB Art students are now working on their own related artworks which we will showcase in the following weeks. During the second Zoom session with De la Gente, our Spanish students learned to make kites, commonly used in celebrations of el Dia de Los Todos Santos (All Saints Day) in Guatemala. While members of the De la Gente team Emma and Ronald practiced a question and answer session in Spanish with our students, team member Luis Pedro demonstrated how to build the kites. After the Zoom WPS students and staff built their kites and had a terrific time as they attempted to fly them in front of the Cypress Center.
