Soun Kunthea: Graphic Design
“When I finish my studies, I want to be a graphic designer,” she says. “I plan to develop completely new ways of designing in Cambodia!”
Soun Kunthea enrolled in the preparation class in 2015. Within four months, it was clear that she had a high level of skill and she was encouraged to apply for the three-year vocational course at the Visual and Applied Arts School.
Kunthea has always liked to draw pictures at home, but she never thought of this as a skill she could develop. When her brother started taking art classes at Phare Ponleu Selpak, she decided to enroll too. Now, she says, she loves her classes, even though the work is not always easy. “We are assigned many difficult things, but we feel that we can do it because of the encouragement of the teachers.”
