Art Relief Workshop with kids at ABC Stratton

THAILAND – Sara gave a workshop at Stratton ABC Foundation close to Chiang Mai. The organisation takes care of several children living in a home at Chompoo, Saraphi in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand. The workshop was organised by Art Relief International.

The Workshop:
Monday afternoon after school the children of Stratton House had a special treat with the arrival of Sara, an Art Relief International volunteer, from Colombia, who came to hold a workshop on movement and dance. In fact she came along with many other volunteers who helped with warm up games for the kids. “I can tell you that all the kids loved the session. Everyone joined in in the end, even our boy Tai, who was very reluctant at first, but couldn’t resist it when he saw how much fun it was.” writes John on the organisation website. “When all was done I got a stream of  “Daddy! Sanook mahk mahk!(=Daddy, this is a lot of fun!) Im hoping that this will be just the first of many such classes. Thank you very much Sara, from everyone here at Stratton House.Sanook mahk mahk! (a lot of fun!)
