I am nearing the end of my week working with students at the International School of Kuala Lumpur. It’s been a great experience and I think I’ve probably learned more than the kids. Here are a few photos and drawings from the week so you can see what I’ve been up to.

I’ve been here before. Soon I won’t be. I’ll be flying to Kuala Lumpur.

The second leg of my trip. HK to KL
Many of the students have lived in many different countries. I can relate. I show them a map of my own childhood peregrinations.

Lots of nice observation, this by a 10th grader.
Some snippets of life around the school.

The koi pond in the school entryway. I painted it in gouache.
KL’s Chinatown is seedy but colorful.
There’s a Chinese graveyard next to the school.
There’s a Hindu grave next to the school too. Boo!

Very nice “history telling”
How long are you staying in KL?
I leave for Beijing on Sunday morning.
I see you travel a lot! Thanks for showing us the drawings from this trip
Amazing experience. Loved the pics of the student drawings. I’m so glad you had a teaching experience with kids!! Very different than adults no?
Oh, I love these pix!
You do leave a colorful footprint – who’s not to relate>? Fun.
Thank you for posting the pictures. The drawings are informative and pleasing. A short geography lesson.
Very nice storytelling, Danny.

Enjoy this travel journal from Danny Gregory.
Great sketches but I absolutely LOOOOVE the kid in the bean bag: All kids with a Mac look alike whatever country they live in !
What an absolutely perfect age to hear and be reminded that “every day matters”. The opportunity and encouragement you afford them may help develop in them them a lifelong love of visual journaling. Awesome.
What a great experience….looks like you had a great time.
Loved hearing about your experiences, Danny. Thanks for posting the pics.
On a trip myself at the moment and decided to sketchbook journal the trip. Looking forward to getting faster with my sketches 😉 Perhaps some tips at SBS when we resume next term.
