Peace Arts Competition

Hey guys,
Hope everyone is doing fine :)
So as I mentioned earlier I've been busy with my internship these days which is going great, I actually don't feel like leaving that place anymore. Though my studies are getting neglected but khair hai. I have been working on the Peace Arts Competition organized by the Charter for Compassion which took place in korangi areas and targeted the korangi schools.

It feels so good to be a part of a good cause, and especially when it has something to do with arts, something I totally love. So there were 10 workshops in total, 2 workshops in one day. Gosh it was a tough job I tell you with scorching heat in Karachi but was fun at the same time. I used to get migranes almost everyday. :D
These workshops catered about 200 children and adults where art  instructors volunteered and taught the participants various drawing and painting techniques. Participants were provided with art kits by the Charter for Compassion during the workshops. This workshop went on from 26th April to 1st May.
And the enthusiasm children showed there was beyond amazing. So much talent that has been neglected all along. The topics for the art competition were 'Fruits of Peace' and 'Roots of Peace'.
Though I was not supposed to participate but I still made a painting cuz I couldn't resist my temptation to paint but that painting doesn't count haha because I made it for my own satisfaction.
