For the vast majority of the children, this is their first exposure to various forms of art and craft, and particularly to the Museum. Artistic activity in the Museum permits many of them to express themselves for the first time in painting, sculpture, photography, and other artistic techniques conveyed to them by the teaching staff. While attending Museum classes, new immigrants combine acquisition of knowledge with personal expression.
