Spreading the Joy of Art

Year Three enjoyed a colourful and super interesting Show & Tell by one of our classmates today.  She visited the Small Art School in Cambodia this Easter and took an art class there.  She brought in the paintings she and her mum had done, a painting of Angkor Wat – the most famous temple in all of Cambodia – and a beautiful book full of art produced by the children and teachers of the school.

Founded in 2008, by Tomoko, a retired Japanese art teacher, this amazing school provides free art education for the local Khmer children, with all the money raised from the sale of artwork, books and classes for paying tourists being ploughed back into the school.   What a fabulous place and what an inspiring woman Tomoko is!  Click on any of the photos to go to the Small Art School’s website to find out more.
