So many participants have let us know, in so many ways, how much an experience at La Romita has meant to them. One of the most fun and creative ways that our participants have let us know is through our “Memory Books”…the scrapbooks in which each group is encouraged to leave some artistic or poetic message for us, and for future groups to see. Teachers and their students have collaborated on these memory book since 1980 and they are jam packed with images and thoughts and reminiscences and emotions. They are a constant source of joy…often inventive and always incredibly beautiful.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we were unable to host workshops for the 2020 and 2021 seasons, so in the fall of 2021 we launched a campaign to try to collect some memories from our friends – old and new. Below are all of the contributions we received.
We are incredibly moved by this outpouring of support for us, and we hope you will take some time to peruse the art and poetry that so many have generously contributed.
