What a delight to be at CURE this morning and see Julie in action. In July 2012, Julie Korn launched CURE Niger’s Art Therapy Program. She is a quite a pioneer, and Becca and I had the privilege of assisting her today. I thought you might enjoy some pictures, mainly of cast painting.
The first little boy was so serious and just would not smile.
After he got in on it and started painting his own cast, he became a different boy.
He was so determined to paint all the cast he could see! Julie had to help him hold one cast up so he could get the one beneath it. This was his first set of casts.
What a cute laugh and an absolutely beautiful smile! That was truly a highlight.
Sweet little Radiya… Oh, look at those nice white casts. Not for long!
Drew even got in on cast painting — what a team effort!
She is a pro; this is probably her 4th casting. She was determined to polka-dot everything! And there is her beautiful smile…
But, it was not all painting. There was glitter too!
Glitter brings as much delight here, as I remember it did when I taught Kindergarten in the states. Oh boy, Zamir loves glitter…. So, glitter is quite wonderful, and colorful casts and art are wonderful, and I think Julie is quite wonderful too!
