Arts Experience Art Camp for Health & Resilience

Students from a very underprivileged neighborhood in Indonesia gather for a 4-day art
camp that focuses on teaching healthy habits and the avoidance of cigarettes which is a
big social problem in the community. Percussion music, singing, movement, role-play
and visual arts are the activities. The art camp will end with a show-case of the large
collaborative paintings that the students are excited to show to their community.
