Art workshop

The Israeli artist Rebeka Uziel was an honored guest at the primary school on Tuesday 19th of February 2008. Rebeka has lived in Uganda herself for many years and still she comes every year to organize an annual art exhibition. Theo is a good friend of Rebeka and it did not need a great effort to convince her to do some artwork with the children. The kids were very enthousiastic and not much was needed to bring out their creativity. First every child individually made a drawing of something he or she liked very much. They then worked in groups of five and made their individual drawings into a collective collage. Classes like these make a lasting impression and in the process children develop the right side of their brain, express their deeper emotions and learn to create together something beautiful. Rebeka promised to come back next year.
