A talented French artist named Louise de Contes who is currently volunteering in Nepal contacted me a few weeks ago about doing a multi-day art workshop and exhibition for deaf/hearing-impaired students at a school in Nepal. I suggested The Purwanchal School for the Deaf in Dharan and yesterday, Louise arrived in Dharan and met the students, staff and Rotaractors for her multi-day workshop and exhibition! TRIFC will fund her transportation and material costs for the workshop, but she is donating her time/expertise. If you check out her website (see link below) you’ll see why I jumped at this chance…her artwork is wonderful, so whimsical and amazing! http://www.loupiotte.info
More to come as the workshop progresses….
