This allows prisoners to harmonize personality, self-esteem, forming value attitude for themleves, to recognize problems in relationships with others, and though use personal resources to overcome crisis situations.
Most ofthe guysdidn’t paint before. Lots of them needed to overcome internal barrier to take a brush in their hands. Butthey admit that starting it became distracting and inspiring.
Sincere communication of volunteers and prisoner while drawing in the fresh air –is the necessary condition for full rehabilitation and positive changes. Volunteers also deliver gifts and sweets.
