On a Sunday Afternoon in Maboneng, Johannesburg. The sidewalk is filled with colorful chairs and happy faces. Kelly Grevler and her students strum away on their guitars and we witness the making of the next generation creatives.
This is the Sidewalk Sessions, a non profit organization she started three years ago, with the initiative to give the children in the community guitar lessons for free. She has received support from the community, and has received 25 donated guitars since she started. Kelly usually takes on eight students at a time, and encourages good behaviour by allowing well behaved students to take a guitar home for practice.
Sidewalk sessions is a great sight to come across, bringing the next generation together through art.
