Spring in Jordan 2015

In May Jean and Laurie returned to Zaatari Refugee Camp near the Syrian border in Jordan. While Laurie taught crochet, played with the children and handed out education kits Jean taught art workshops to young men. One of the workshops focussed on comics. Here are the amazing results.

Sadly we ran out of time before many of these pieces were finished. We will return in the fall and continue this project so that these talented artists can tell more of their stories for their friends and families from Syria and for all of us around the world.
