Art Leadership program in Lumawawasang orphanage in Ipoh, Malaysia.
Oogie students traveled to Malaysia to paint a colorful mural at an orphanage located in Ipoh. It was painted on the wall of their workshop center where students learn basic sewing or barbershop skills in order to prepare them for a job once they leave the orphanage. Oogie students made artwork together on the topic of mentors and role models, and many orphans told their stories of missing their own families. Oogie students learned the role of bringing art to connect as a universal language.
