Art expands the horizon of young people with disabilities


Art is a universal language that gives people a voice to express their views and perspectives through colours, brushstrokes and painting styles.  Project Leaders Alfons and Sophie Mensdorff-Pouilty of the No Limits Social Club and Betty Cheung, founder of  artjamming™, co-hosted an “Art Party” on 23rd October, 2021 for our young guests with disabilities.

Betty prepared over 20 different paint colours for the 18  guests and 13 volunteers to work on during the 1-hour artjamming session.   Everyone quickly focused on their work and beautiful creations in all mediums soon emerged, ranging from natural scenery to palm prints to animated characters.

After the artjamming session, the venue was quickly transformed into a disco and everyone took to the dance floor with enthusiasm. so joyfully.  First-timer Yurika  particularly enjoyed the dancing.  Her mother said, “ I was initially hesitant to bring her to this event because she usually cannot bear loud noise.  I was so happy to see that this event proved to be a breakthrough for Yurika.  The loud music and movement didn’t upset her at all,  instead she danced away like there’s no tomorrow!”

Dawn, another mother, said, “I am so thankful that my daughter was invited to this event.  She enjoyed herself and I was actually surprised at how comfortable and settled she was in a new environment.  I  want to thank Sophie and all the volunteers who organized this wonderful event for our children.”

Guests and volunteers enjoying the artjamming together!
