by Cheyenne Bilderback

The kit is inspired by beautiful spring weather and the approaching summer days that, due to the pandemic, we may not be able to enjoy as fully as we would otherwise. It contains elements that express both celebration and yearning. Summer is a time of year I always look forward to, but I know it's going to look different this time around. With festivals cancelled, beaches closed, and social gathering still very limited in most parts of the world, I know this summer will be tinged with more sadness than usual. 


We recommend printing these pages out so you can use good old-fashioned scissors and glue to do some arts and crafts. When you're done, send a photo or a scan of your artwork to hello@nearnessproject.comHappy collaging!
