Teaching Art During Vietnam War

Categories: East Asia, Vietnam, Arts & Culture, History

The British Library blog features several art works made during the Vietnam War [1] era. It also quotes Nguyễn Toan Thi, a guerilla artist during the war:

Art classes were held outside in the forest until our schools were bombed: classes were then held underground. Art teachers and students shared the same trenches. We fought and sketched together, to record spontaneous and realistic images of the battlefield and our life in the forest.
