Art Theraphy in Youth Camp















Last weekend I spent my time usefully by helping out at a Youth Camp in the Maha Karuna Buddhist Association in Subang 2. A friend who organized this camp has invited me to share with the students on public speaking (where I am active in).

I had the chance to meet another fellow trainer, Sis. Mee Yuen, who introduced the students to art theraphy. It was a very enlightening session. Through the art activity, one gets to learn more about one's characters and qualities. It was a very wonderful opportunity for me to be exposed to such session. And working with the youth was really fun and inspiring.

In the future, I hope there would be more opportunities like this for me to work with youths. The youths whom I met last weekend were very competitive, fun-loving and musically inclined students. Hope they would grow to be responsible and wonderful adults.

Above are photos taken during the art theraphy session.

Very interesting pictures! There is an Art Therapy program at the University where I work.

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
