‘Art for Akanksha’ Products

Akanksha products range from simple ideas to complicated pieces of art! At the heart of each product is the immense talent in children and their boundless creativity. Each product is more than just a piece of art; each product carries the story of the child or children who were involved in creating it. Akanksha products capture the creativity we foster in our art programs and design class.

Akanksha Products can be divided into 3 categories:

1. Hand-crafted Products from Design class

Art can be an equalizer. Art for Akanksha believes that art can be a special way of bringing children and adults from different backgrounds together on a common platform. The workshops bring together children and adults from different sections of society, empowering each with the knowledge that no matter how different they are, they still have the same potential. Every activity can be customized to suit a specific objective – teaching a new art technique, teaching a value, having lots of fun, working together as a team, or getting to know each other.
