Every year we run a series of EGAKU sessions at Sekimachi Kita Elementary School and last
month we held a workshop for students from grades 3-6. 

We were impressed by the sight of the students intently hanging on to Professor Kuni's words
as he spoke about how man has been painting for 30,000 years, how 'seeing' a painting is a
window to your heart and to the hearts of your friends. 

At the end, during the presentation of everyone's works, everyone was bursting with curiosity,
eager to discover each other's 'hearts' - there were even cheers when some poetic titles were
read out. 

Next month we will be running a workshop for Grades 1-2.  We wonder what kind of workshop 
it will turn out to be, and what kind of 'hearts' will emerge.
