    You all know that almost all boys do this kind of art when given free choice;
    certainly in my classes in this country and even those who have only, maybe,
    seen it on TV.

    << The pain of war and its effects on the psyche of a child

    are evident in the pictures they draw with markers, crayons and chalk.

    Death, blood, tanks and tears: common elements in the drawings of children

    who fled war-ravaged homelands in Europe, Africa or the Middle East. Works

    of young refugees from around the world are part of the "Far From Homeland,"

    an exhibit making its U.S. debut at the Baltimore Lutheran Center. It's the

    first time the collection is being displayed outside of London and Greece.

    The exhibit, organized by the London International Gallery of Children's

    Art, showcases drawings by refugees who fled from Kosovo, Croatia,

    Bosnia-Herzegovina, Western Sahara, Iran, Iraq, Turkey and Syria. >>
