The Uganda Clinic Project is an AMAZING endeavor between 3 Eastern Christian High School classes, 2 St. Peter’s Prep classes, and missionaries in war-torn Uganda, among others as the list involved continues to grow. It began with an art class wanting something to paint on and is building up to an inspiring awareness piece. This photo essay details the project as it unfolds.
Missionaries Jesse & Andrea Kroeze SKYPE into EC’s Experiencing Missions class providing information regarding their plans to build a medical clinic in Uganda to service thousands of displaced peoples.
The Design Tech class receives initial sketches for the clinic and refines them. Meanwhile, students at St. Peter’s Prep receive the same. The schools plan to exchange sketches and ideas.
WILD! The architect overseeing the project in Uganda expresses interest. Matt Wolfe, at esteemed firm GENSLER, SKYPES into the Design Tech class offering his personal testimony of his journey into architecture and advice on the design process. He suggests a collaboration with the students to develop the final drafts.
SKY’S THE LIMIT
To raise awareness, the Tech class works with the Art class to develop a symbolic structure to be made at Eastern Christian. It will be painted by the Art class based on the information supplied by the Experiencing Missions class. They go for an 8′ x 8′ x 8′ structure that when seen from above doubles as a cross (icon often used to indicate a hospital).
BLOOD, SWEAT, AND CHEERS
Inspired, the Art class begins creating stencils using images from Uganda and others they’ve created in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Meanwhile the Tech class breaks out the drills and saws to begin construction. Cold weather and bleeding knuckles won’t slow their pace.
ROOM TO BREATH
After acquiring a unique space to work in the students make the most of it. Watch a time lapse video of the project so far below.
Inspired by an upcoming trip to assist missionaries building a medical clinic in Uganda, Eastern Christian High School students work as a collective called Boiler Room Bombers to create a time-lapse art video to bring awareness to the plight and hope of displaced people in Uganda.
