Hiroshi Yoshioka spent several years teaching art to art teachers and students at a Lao school. What materials did they work with? What did they create? For his PechaKucha, Hiroshi will talk about his students and show some of their artwork, and discuss his thoughts about the role of art in Laos. These are all thoughts that grew out of spending time with his teaching colleagues and students.
