 The Arrernte mothers have their pre-schoolers in a program titled, Children's Ground, one of the most productive initiatives to have started a few years ago and supported by a philanthropic group from Melbourne. 

Once or twice a week the group travel to the respective homelands to conduct sessions so that the particularities of regional particularities can be observed and recorded. The mums asked if I'd make a painting of some of the kids when the Eastern branch of the group held the session at Undoolya Outstation.
