Ever since I began formalising my teaching efforts through Drawing Room, I’ve been extremely fortunate to have connected with many like minded people. Whether it was people who opened up their homes and invited me to run workshops for their children, people who understood the essence of what I’m trying to do and worked out ways in which I could engage with children who could benefit from it, to those who were there for me with resources, advice and all kinds of help to see my plans take shape.
I feel lucky that this also has led me to collaborate with enthusiastic people who have been so supportive and encouraging. My next project will see Drawing Room travelling to Goa next week, where I will spend the next three weeks creating a dedicated art space for children to feel free to visit and create, when they have an urge to.
The space will be equipped with drawing materials and tools for every child to explore what he or she wants to. Starting on the 13th of September, I will begin my three-week teaching stint in the art space. Over the course of three weeks I hope unfold various stories, explorations, revisiting memories and a lot more, while learning techniques and skills, and ending with looking at our earth and its existing natural forms to learn about abstract and natural life forms.
The last two months have been especially exciting as I’ve felt waves of inspiration while planning and structuring this project. If you’re in Goa (whether you live there, or are visiting any time in the duration of my project) please drop by and join me in making some art! Do share the details in the poster below, with friends and family in and around Goa. I’d be happy to meet some of your littles and share some of the magic!
