With a sense of creativity and play that was just mind-blowing, these 11 year olds took the Kathakali worksheet to the next level.

Covering a range of concepts: colour, symmetry, composition, finger-skills, collaboration, creativity, exploration and most important of all, play, these worksheets a great way to inspire curiosity and love for art and culture in kids.

We started with a discussion on Museums and their significance and then eased ourselves into the worksheet with a story from Kathakali by one of the children. This came as a surprise and hearing it from one of their own classmates, was something special for the other kids.

The kids in this group were quick on the uptake and easily departed from the structure provided at the start of the session taking the worksheet to its full potential!
