Art Pitara is an  initiative of Happy Hands Foundation, New Delhi to build public interaction with the traditional and folk arts through learning and creation.

In association with Khel Mel, an initiative of Artreach India, we bring to you a series of weekend workshops spread across 7 months: September 2016-March 2017.

Art Pitara and Khel Mel brings to the city, an eclectic mix of crafts and arts from rural India. Sessions are led by Master Artists, District, State, National Awardees and are open to children between ages 7 and 11.

Not only do you get to meet artisans coming from various parts of India, but you get to acquire a new skill over the summers and winters, and make interesting things which you can ‘Show and Tell’ with! 

What’s more, you will inch closer to India’s rich heritage with the little stories and legends you might pick up from artisans during the workshops. Your kids will also interact with children from community schools to build friendships and dissolve existing social barriers in an environment of creative learning.

The best way to learn, is by having fun – yes, we believe that!
