Four months ago I was trying to find the gallery can help Noor to show her paintings.
Noor is one of my students. She is an artist, and a few weeks ago I went to a meeting of Iraqi artists and writers to ask if they could help us host a show for the Iraqi kids.
One of them was encouraging and she is a poet and she liked what I do with my students. She agreed to host the show on Friday, Jan. 30.
Noor was nervous.
"The most important day of my live is this day," she said.
There were not a lot of people there but I am happy that I have a new project for artistic children, and now I am planning to a bigger show with more student artists.
