We are sure that you agree that Swami and Friends is a classic novel written by one of India's best-known authors. R.K. Narayan created a world extremely rooted in India in the 1930s. He also gave us wonderfully imaginative and unique characters in Malgudi Swami, Rajam, Mani, Grandmother, Sankar, Pea, Dr. Kesavan and the list goes on. The joy of Anubhava would like to uncover the book with the children of today. These two workshops will enable participants to completely understand and interpret the story using multiple art forms.
Participants can draw their own versions of Malgudi. They can depict the story using photos. They can collaborate and enact various scenes and even create some of their own. They can become music directors to explore the story. They can use writing to get into the skin of the characters. Does this sound fun to you or your children? Register now to participate in an innovative, experiential, and fun workshop that will also encourage participants to read more while building key skills such as creativity, empathy, and critical thinking!!!
Participants in the age group of 9-14 years can enroll in individual workshops or take advantage of a discounted offer of 25% to register for both workshops. What are you waiting for? REGISTER NOW!!!
