We started off the session by telling each other stories about our characters, which we had made from the previous Dear You art workshop in Lights, Camera, Action!. From then on, it was a smooth flow as to how to develop our ideas when creating our homes for the characters in Layers of Love. We took each other on an imaginary adventure to discover what's on the inside and on the outside of our home. As we scratching away the top layer the Monkeys realized that they could manipulate what they would like to reveal about the inside of the house.
