Workshop for the inmates

A workshop was also organised for the inmates in which they learnt the techniques of collage and expressed themselves in colorful paintings. This workshop was done under the supervision of Blaise, an artist from Karnataka. Along with the workshop, he had also painted the mural inside the jail.
