Today we went to Hope Home and worked with the children doing sponge painting and and sensory stimulation and sound workshop. We watched a cute little cartoon of a singing and dancing elephant and then sponge painted with the kids. The sponges were cut out as leaves, circles, squares and even elephants. Some of us painted with the sponges on our own paper while a few worked on a large outline of elephants in their natural habitat. The elephants and trees were soon covered with paint along with the children's hands and feet. I got to work with Boomrat who was very interested in what Phil and Pancake were doing rather than his own work. Some of the children have Cerebral Palsey, including Boomrat, and cannot fully grasp the brush without help. He can paint himself with just a little help. All the children seemed really happy getting messy in the paints even though a few of them were a little sick. The paintings turned out beautifully and us Canvas Art people were as happy as the kids were. It was amazing working with them as my first experince here in Thailand. We look forward to seeing all of them next Wednesday.
