Abstract drawing-Face No.5 by Mong is one of our kid’s great art works. Art is important to those unfortunate little kids like him. Since it helps child development’s skills. Art lends itself to physical development and the enhancement of mental skills. Art activities also strengthen children’s social and emotional development. This kind of therapy is not only improving physical used skills in our children but also let them express themselves become calmer, more relaxed and focused. These experiences help our mentally disabled children gain these character traits and thrive under them.
Since the Home has been applying the art as the tool (Art therapy) to achieve Camillian Children’s progress and involving local kids in the community from outside of the home to interact with our children in the art program. Therefore, Mong, our little artist who is living with physical disabilities has been caring by Camillian Home under the Day Care Program.
Since children enjoyed to produce more pieces of art work, the little business has begun. Their small business is running with their innocent’s creativities. Each piece of clay manipulated or each easel painting is individual and original to each child.
Contributions such as supporting Camillian’s kid small business and/or art activities can be a great way to secure again a relational connection between business’ society, individual and community.
Abstract drawing-Face No.5 is one of several pieces of Mong’s paintings.
