Art Therapy workshop for young minds  

The PYP at EPS is known for its vibrant hustle and bustle. In these difficult times when the world is in the middle of fighting a pandemic, and the colours and vibrancy can’t be witnessed on campus with Online distance learning: PYP is on toes with interactive live online classes, events, virtual field trips, workshops, expert talks, etc lined up for our curious learners.

On August 19, as part of the Grade 5 Wellbeing art integration, the first-ever Art therapy workshop by Saba Iftikhar was organized for students and parents. They learned how Art in itself is therapeutic and can help us relax when we are stressed out while it has proved helpful for patients who have gone through traumatic experiences and with mental illnesses like Dyslexia etc.

Students had a chance to experience relaxing doodle making and were thrilled to see a quick yet relaxing demonstration of therapeutic artwork. Their smiles and excitement showed how eager they were to have more such workshops and experiences in

the future.
