Junior high school students from three metropolitan schools for the Deaf and a private school for the Deaf in Tokyo will visit Taiwan during the winter break, December 26-30, as part of the seminar including sketching and the appreciation of art.
They were selected by interview by the Tokyo Education Board, etc.
The group met with the School Board on December 15. Abe Natsumi (阿部菜摘), 14, a student of the Katsushika School for the Deaf, said in sign language that she hoped to draw Taiwanese streets.
An exhibition of the works sketched after the group returns home is planned.
"The Oriental School of Fine Arts," a college of fine arts in Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo started the program in 2002 with planning and funding.
