Painting Dreams with government school children (Mumbai)

In February 2020, in partnership between Artreach India and Zee live, I led an immersive canvas-mural painting workshop with government school children in Mumbai. We collaborated with Mumbai based NGO Saturday Art Class, and independent cultural practitioner Habiba Insaf, for this programme.

This large mural began with lots of drawing on paper around ‘dreams and super powers’ and went on to creating dynamic images of strong yet playful children, surrounded by visual symbols of their dreams – becoming a scientist, explorer, dancer and building houses of their own! The process was very interactive, fun and democratic and each child truly participated in making the mural.
