During this learning time, participants will be invited to appreciate all forms of communication. They will have the time to organise their thoughts and express their own message of hope using the universal language of art. In this lesson participants will be asked to use gestures, mime, dancing and painting or drawing to express themselves.  All of this will lead them to nourish within themselves greater appreciation towards artists, who use their talents to share with the rest of mankind their thoughts, feelings, hopes and dreams.
