Quiet moments are rare at Phaung Daw Oo, a monastic school in Mandalay that's home to around 10,00 students. Days are long in the constant summer heat, which pushes temperatures into triple digits for weeks without relief. Still, one student finds time for quick art in a simple expression of peace and beauty.
