On Sunday 23rd August, 15 of the students were welcomed to Elephant Parade House in Watgate, Chiang Mai and after listening to a short presentation about Elephant Parade and elephant conservation, they all tried their hand at painting their own designs.
Each student chose a base colour and then added details to individualize their elephant. Some chose flowers and hearts, others wrote a slogan or message, and others painted elaborate designs over the back and down the trunk.
The results were impressive, with several of the students showing real artistic flair. The elephants will now be a part of the decoration in their rooms in the S4L house.
