Using art to help refugees in Syria


MARCUS YAM / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Racha Haroun, right, writes in Arabic, "You are all in our hearts, from Seattle" on her son's drawing at Jean Bradbury's Studio Syria booth during the Melrose Market Street Fair, in Seattle, on Sunday, Aug. 25, 2013. Jean Bradbury, a Seattle-based Canadian artist who is the founder-director of Studio Syria, is holding an art workshop to create "drawings and colorful messages" to take with her when she goes back to Jordan in September to teach art at Zaatari Refugee Camp. Initially setup as a short-term refuge the population at Zaatari has become Jordan's fourth largest city and the world's second largest refugee camp behind Dadaab in eastern Kenya.
