In the summer of 2013, Sara Mraish Demeter from ARCK and a CAC board member, set out to help about 30 Syrian refugee children for a week-long workshop titled, “Storytelling Through Art.”

The children learned how to author a book, illustrate and write it. They learned hope when they built a city out of cardboard. They learned to seek perserverance and wisdom when they took the books that they designed with them, and it became their only belonging to heal from after they left from war.
