We are delighted to be back at Goethe-Insitute / Max Mueller Bhavan Kolkata with the second edition of Arts For Juniors, an initiative for children to engage, discover and explore the world of art, music and books through a range of diverse, exciting activities for ages 8 to 12. These sessions are designed not to ‘teach an art form’ but to acquaint children with different artists and authors, share their inspirations and in the process spark imagination and encourage the participants to explore their own creativity.
*All sessions will be held in English, at the MMB library from 11 am to 1 pm.

Feedback from Parents:
"My son wrote some interesting comments on the classical musical pieces. I wonder if the facilitator got to read them. I for one found them fresh and uncluttered by awe. He seems to have responded to the music enough to have noted the changes in the mood and tone. Thank you for that."
"As a parent I was impressed with how Western classical music was made accessible and impressionable to young minds, with audio visual story telling format, interspersed with ear training through select pieces. It's a great workshop designed as an entry point for children to open their minds to great art."
"We have been going to several sessions organized by other institutes in Calcutta for my son's age group and some of them are also quite good, but what sets Think Arts apart from the others are the excellent choice of topics that appeals to the young minds. Instead of sticking to the usual time-tested subjects you try to go beyond the ordinary and touch on those aspects of the child’s brain which helps to kindle his imagination process and might ignite the passion for a particular interest."
