Kids & Youth
Takaban Elementary School of Meguro Ward
Every year we run a workshop at Takaban Elementary School - this year we had 24 children
taking part in the workshop, painting their hearts, their souls.
In the spirit of the summer holidays, the kids seemed restless and excited at first - however, as
soon as Professor Kuni started the class, everyone fell silent, listening carefully.
When they started painting, they were completely immersed in their own world.
I wonder what color my heart is? I wonder what kind of place it is?
They completed their works all the time wrestling with these questions.
During the final presentation of the paintings, despite their nerves they presented the titles of
their works with confidence. Please take a look at these 24 masterpieces.
