Weekly: Art Classes for Kids
I take weekly classes with kids from 4 years to 12 years of age in different batches. I cover watercolors painting, oil pastels, pencil colors and sketching skills with them.
The idea of these classes is to motivate kids towards more productive and healthier activities like arts instead of spending time in front of TV or video games. The environment of the class is very fun and relaxing. Kids thoroughly enjoy my classes and really look forward to attending them, and so do I :)

Live art at The Link Gallery's Valentine's Day event
Made live art at the Valentine's Day event at the Waterloo Innovation Park to add more fun and colors to the event. People attending the event loved watching me paint, talked about the materials I was using and in general enjoyed the artists touch to the afternoon!
Corporate Paint Night, Jan 2023
Did a corporate paint night at Waterloo Innovation Park, with a group of around 10 people. I provided all the art materials (Easels, canvases, paints, brushes, rags, palettes, pencils, erasers, sharpies etc) and gave step by step instructions to co-create some beautiful pieces of art. Everyone loved the process and their final art pieces. It was a huge hit!
Art Event @ Laurelwood Retirement Home, Oct 2022
Did a greeting card making activity @ Court At Laurelwood Retirement Residence. The activity was designed and conducted keeping in mind the reduced motor skills and weak eye sight of senior people. After one round of making greeting cards, they were so motivated, they made another set of greeting cards. One person made a Halloween themed greeting card for her son, another one made a portrait, one person did an En Plein Air from the window and one made a card from her imagination. They shared stories of their art experiences in the past, when they were younger. They also brought out their old art pieces and showed me. In-fact one lady who was 93 years old gifted me cards from her patch work art.
