Siem Reap in Cambodia is the home of Angkor Wat, and also a free art school. Former Japanese art teacher Kasahara Tomoko set it up in 2008, and it now has around 100 pupils. Many teachers were killed under Pol Pot and there are still no school art classes. Kasahara believes that drawing freely as a child is deeply important to personal growth. Six of her former students now teach at the school themselves. Follow their efforts to revitalize the spirit of art among Cambodia's children.
