Our Korczak students were each given a camera, taught a few lessons in photography, and told to take pictures. “Shoot anything you think is beautiful or interesting,” urged their teacher, Sara Khazem, the founder of the Capturing Neverland Foundation (www.facebook.com/sarakhazem). For the next four days, our students took pictures of their life in the slums. On the fifth and final day of the workshop, they spent an unforgettable day in Wat Phra Kaew, framing its beauty as skilled photographers.
In the course of the Neverland workshop, our kids learned that how they view the world around them matters, and that, in fact, their own perceptions are meaningful, even beautiful, and most certainly worthy of art!
