Volunteering at Children's Hospital Marist Brothers; Center in Esopus, NY

SAORI Arts NYC is volunteering for a week-long fun children's camp from the Children's Hospital Marist Brothers Center in Esopus, NY. Our NPO President Ria Hawks and Vice President Yukako Satone are working with children with cancer at Marist Brothers' Center in Upstate NY in Esopus. They are engaging in natural dye activities, such as gathering fruits, leaves, and flowers to dye and print fabric. Here are some photos from their time there!

The girl who lost her eyesight since she was 9 was enjoying designing with flowers, leaves, fruits and onion skins. Those aromas and feelings inspired her to create images with colors.
