Lots of Art, Lots of Helpers, Lots of Fun!

We have had an intensive few weeks of art and dance classes with many friends of the center calling in to run different sessions. The children have really enjoyed it. From making clay elephants, to tie-dye and jewellery making the children have been spoiled for choice.

We have way too many photos to chose from and we are saving the dance videos as some of the steps will make an appearance in our Khmer New Year celebrations. A huge thank you to Sandi, Jo, Frank, Rich, Phill, Mikki and Marah for making it so much fun!

A New Technique

We have been very lucky to be joined at the center by Elizabet and Sandra, a psychologist and social worker respectively, and art school members. They have been running a variety of workshops designed to get children to express their creativity in different forms and discover a new way of learning. The students seemed to really engage in the tasks and loved using their imaginations so much. Everything involved a process of discussions and free thought, play acting and hands on making/painting/playing. It was a great chance for the staff to discover new teaching methodologies.

All the workshops were lots of fun with everyone giggling away. It was a really lovely experience and one which has taught us all a lot here about creative ways of approaching learning which we will definitely be utilizing from now on.
