About 300 Pattaya School No. 2 students were given an introduction to traditional Thai art at an “Amazing Thailand Culture” event organized by the city and Pattaya Cultural Council.
Deputy Mayor Wattana Chantanawaranon opened the June 28 event aimed at instilling cultural values in children so they realize the importance of Thai culture, which is slowly disappearing. The event focused on educating and lessons in Thai art forms.
Extra concentration and a steady hand are needed to create a good drawing.
The Cultural Council and Pattaya Education Department offered lectures and lessons on fruit carving, “puang ma hod” golden brocades, glass painting, gilding statutes or art with gold, painting and restoring old sculptures.
Teachers at the school show the students how best to create art.
