Workshops and Activities 
Learning happens in the minds and souls of children, all children start their school careers with sparkling imaginations, fertile minds and a willingness to take risks with what they think. The instructed classes would explore the full range of children's abilities and interests in a safe environment where there is no judgment on performance. Focusing on bringing out the power of creative thinking. Children would explore their thoughts and emotions through color, texture, and design in an environment where there is no comparison, no right or wrong way of expressive art. Children will learn to work on their own and in a group environment, through collaboration, thinking outside the box and exploring to awaken their creativity.
