Adventures

``Our Traditions`` - Videos

“Our Traditions” is a showcase of family traditions from across the world.

These videos were created as a result of a call to our ArtLink community.
We asked students and their families to share a family tradition that was important to them.

Below you’ll find “Our Traditions” (a 3-min video) featuring highlights from the video submissions.

Also enjoy 6 full length videos from families that were selected because of their vision and creativity!

We wish to thank all of the families who participated in making this project a success.

Title: Preparing Food
Artist: Paul
Age: 13
Country: Uganda

This is a village scene. You can see women preparing food and some huts in the background.

My family consists of my mother and my three brothers, but I don’t have a father. He passed away, so I only have a family of four people. I like doing arts and crafts, and I like spending my time creating pictures which I later paint, thus improving my talent. I dislike playing in my free time and dislike underestimating people. I spend my leisure reading my books, making mobiles, and drawing cards. I want to be a pilot and an artist.

Title: The Egyptian Market
Artist: Huda
Age: 13
Country: Egypt

My scene shows the Egyptian local market of fruits and vegetables. I chose this tradition because I like to help my mom when she goes to buy vegetables and fruits from the market.

My mom is a teacher, my dad is an engineer. I have 2 sisters and 2 brothers. I like watching TV, helping my mom in buying fruits and vegetables. I like tennis very much, playing computer games. I dislike eating fish, playing football and volleyball. I like drawing and coloring, music, swimming, and running in my free time. I would like to be a teacher.

Title: Giraffe Relaxing Under Tree
Artist: Vida
Age: 12
Country: Botswana

The giraffe is standing next to the tree. I chose this scene because the giraffe is one of my favorite animals.

My family are my mum, dad, and brother. I love horse-riding and acting. I hate reading. I spend my free time going riding, swimming, and bike-riding. I also do art and watch T.V. In my life, I hope to become someone who works with animals.

Artist: Nastya
Age: 12
Country: Russia

On my picture I drew the scene where my cat and my dog are playing.

“I have a mother and father and also a grandmother and grandfather. I am interested in music, I play the piano, and I like to sing. I like English and art. I like playing a computer and traveling. I dislike football and going into the forest. I want to be a lawyer.”

Title: Bird Family Living On A Tree In My Garden
Artist: Kanishka
Age: 11
Country: Sri Lanka

One Saturday when I was reading a book under a big tree in my garden I heard some birds singing. When I saw them I thought it was a very nice scene and have drawn it. I chose this scene since I sympathize with all beings, birds and animals.

I have one little sister and a pet dog named Peggi. I like to be kind towards animals and poor children who are employed. I hate to see poor animals and children being tortured. I spend my free time by reading books about astronomy, playing chess, and football. I hope to become a space engineer. I am a member of the Sir Arthur C. Cleark’s Institute in Sri Lanka.
