18 Feb – We spent the whole afternoon painting with children from a children’s home. These young children of aged 7 years old t0 11 years old worked their way with paint brushes and acrylic paints, dipping into the containers and painting along the outlines and guidelines which we had prepared a day before.

We were glad to share an artistic skill with the children and to enable them to achieve a sense of ownership in a painted mural. Grandstand Mall partners with the children home and they would frequent the mall with several activities each month. ArtStories hope they would be able to walk past the mural with pride each time they visit the mall!
