Indigo, a beautiful creature known for her sincerity, creativity, work ethic, and of course art has recently returned from a trip to Cape Town, South Africa, for a project called A Word Of Art, where she witnessed both rural and central townships in the surrounding area first hand with her paintbrushes.
She has shared here experience with the world to view on her blog, Indigo Goes To Cape Town which only highlights a small fraction of the experience she has had there, so I suggest to dig around the site for a while.
One of her projects was to paint a few walls at a home, called Percy Bartley House, where she did an outer wall portrait of one of the oldest, and most respected residents at the home. This may not be a big deal normally, but this house happens to be a residence for boys who have faced severe adversity, giving them a safe place to learn and grow with the necessary support to do so.
