CEI's Art Program Puts the 'Creative' in Creative Exchanges

In Spring 2018, CEI launched an art program in Haiti, led by an inspired instructor in the person of Fedler Descobet, who is teaching children how to draw as well as assisting with music classes. He also led the Art Camp for the Wisconsin Haiti Project in June.

Instructor Fedler Descobet said, “When I was little, my teacher told my mom I’m a very good student except for art and music. It was true. I could not draw at all. So I decided to teach myself to draw, and to learn to play the bassoon because it’s one of the hardest instruments to play."

Now, Fedler is teaching other children to draw and assisting with music classes. He also led the Art Camp for the Wisconsin Haiti Project in June.
