I'm not sure I like that kind of art, but I really like the shots, and the fact that they are using their art to get an education

@CElliottUK: Yes the pictures are somewhat lurid:)
The best of these scenes for me ... gestures concentrate at work and dirty hands well ... and let all those who paint with brushes or fingers! Best regards, Adela

Concentration maximum pour ces jeunes artisans !

Is this another semi-commercial venture to support the schools?

@Curly: Yes. They also do silk weaving, wood carving, metal casting, fine box weaving from natural fibres, pierced leather-work and other things in a similar arts and crafts vein. The children start quite young and to some extent it could be seen as child labour, but it is far preferable to just leaving them on the streets, which is the alternative, given the poverty of the country.
have a look here
Wonderful montage - looks like some talented work is being done. Inspiring example of self-help as well.

They are both super images, with a special mood and processing !

Is the paint só dangerous they have to wear these mouth things?
Beautiful shots again!

@Thea: They are probably using oil paints so there would be volatile oils. However these masks would not protect them. There seems to be a craze for wearing these masks in the Far East, however as they only offer protection against coarse particles like sawdust they are useless for filtering out the pollution people are generally wearing them for.
The total concentration comes through your pictures very well. fine action shots of these artists.

Very nice images, and I like the tone of the yellows and greens very much.

Beautiful ! Great portrait of these serious artisans !

They have so much dedication in everything they do even though the result may be mediocre. But this is a good shot !

Great shots and presentation.

it is like anything else-- one should learn the basics first. the more one learns, the more choices one has. it doesn't matter if anyone "likes" this particular style or not. it is the making or 'doing' that is important.
being around other creative people is very cool too. creative energy begets more energy.
i like the photos. they seem almost quaint, like something remembered. they are reminiscent of childhood curiosity and innocence.
all in all, as they say in antarctica, pretty cool.

I really enjoy those people one with their work, great reportage scenes.

very cool - I have also noticed that these masks are commonly used. Interesting. Great shot.
