We held our 4th EGAKU session at Sekimachi Kita Elementary School for a group of 4th-6th graders as part of the "Midori no Kaze no Hiroba" initiative. 
The students rolled up their sleeves and took on the challenge of the EGAKU Program with enthusiasm, and an impressive degree of concentration and focus. As each one of them presented their artwork, we were struck by the sheer poetry and philosophical overtones of some of the titles and concepts behind the works! 'The conflict within', 'Coloured emotions', 'The good and the bad (heart/soul)'... 
This was our last EGAKU session at Sekimachi Kita for the year - but we're looking forward to seeing some new faces as well as some old in 2014!
