ART & DESIGN

Art encourages us to express ourselves aiming to foster creativity and empathy by changing your self-image and metaphor. The purpose of studying art is to mould the minds of children to develop a positive nature and appreciate natural beauty and it makes us strive more intently, think much more deeply, and feel joy more profoundly.

Subcategories: Architecture, Fashion, Painting, Music, Photography.
