Stories From the Field

The Art Exhibit

Some time ago we were given pictures drawn by art students in a school located in the nearby town of Asenovgrad. The art teacher there is extremely talented and really brings out the best in her students. With the help of our language teacher, Elena, we were able to set up a “Cultural Night/Art Exhibit” in a local library where we could display the pictures. Many people from Plovdiv and Asenovgrad were invited and various people came. We announced that the pictures were available for them to take home but we asked that they make a donation. We were able to raise 275 leva for the school to purchase needed art supplies. It was a wonderful evening meeting new people, listening to music and poetry and enjoying the pictures the children had made.
