En Plane Air is a rotating student airport art exhibition that showcases the talents of Broward County students.
The Broward County Aviation Department, Broward Cultural Division Public Art & Design Program, Broward
County Parks and Recreation Division, and the Broward Municipal Services District are pleased to present an
exhibit of artworks by local children attending the 2017 “Summer Recreation Program” at Roosevelt Gardens Park.
Professional artist, Toni Doku, whose professional name is Toni Withaneye, led the children, aged six to ten,
in the making of the artworks entitled “Seeing Florida My Way.” Toni and the children first discussed what
they liked about Florida, the shape of the state, along with sketching and painting techniques. Then, using
their imagination and with the help of Toni’s expert instruction, the children drew and painted their favorite
Florida places and things on canvas boards with acrylic paint. The result is a colorful expression of each
child's sense of community.
Toni is an author, artist and teacher. She uses her diverse arts background and 20 years of experience to
educate and teach in a fun way. Toni lives in Fort lauderdale, Florida with her family, teaches and continues
to be inspired by her children and students.
Roosevelt Gardens is one of six Neighborhood Parks that offered summer recreation programs in 2017.
Participants experienced a variety of indoor and outdoor activities, including arts and crafts, a nutrition program,
sports, guest speakers, water safety instruction and more.
