Student Showcase: Refugee Youth Art Program, Spring Semester 2012

As our semester with the IRC’s Refugee Youth Program came to a close, ASTEP volunteer artists helped the students present their artwork to their families and communities during a final performance and ceremony. The evening was a celebration of creativity, full of proud moments and feelings of accomplishment!
