The Kids surround John DeFaro, who is also giving Julia specific instructions for picture taking.

On their first Saturday, the kids engaged in the construction of tribal objects named ‘The Brushsticks’ and ‘The Masks’--they actually renamed them 'The Skulls' using organic materials found in our immediate surroundings.
