"I was looking for the most exciting project that I can bring to these children something that they will never forget and may never have a chance to experience in the situation that they are in. I could never imagine that I could bring them Fresco!" - said Tansey in the phone conversation with iLia Anossov
"Tansey was thrilled when I mentioned that painted tiles can be easily assembled on the wall in a quilt-like mural that could grow if you continue conducting the workshop and new students add their frescoes to the mural." - reflects iLia Anossov.
