Encouraging Self Expression through Art

Children's faces are blurred to protect their identity

At Brighter Tomorrow we encourage a child’s self-expression through process-oriented art. 

These children are often punished if they draw, as the only drawing surfaces they have are the walls of the houses where they live and work. 

At Brighter Tomorrow they are given the opportunity, not only to draw, but to express different feelings through their artwork. In a recent activity, we asked them to express happiness which they expressed as a full moon in different colors. 

The full moon, known as the moon of the 14th, is when the children can play in the cold light of the moon after a hot day in the burning sun. It is the night when they are told different romantic stories about the moon and when they are taught how to make shadow figures on the wall with their hands.
