“Thinking outside the box” distinguishes the best from the rest. When children learn to create a rhythm, enact a dialogue, imagine and paint, narrate stories, it enables them to develop qualities that will help them now and in future.
Activities such as speaking in front of large audience, making mistakes while rehearsing, stepping out of comfort zone, accepting mistakes or playing as a part of the team make them more confident through practical situations.
As there is no right or wrong about an abstract representation of an idea, every mistake is considered as an attempt and not a mistake. Children learn to take feedbacks positively.
Fun is at the helm of every activity at Arty Smarty Kids Club. When children start taking keen interest in what they do, they will do it with greater enthusiasm.
The ability to listen and contribute/deliver requires great deal of focus and practice. These qualities become easier to practice and imbibe within the realm of Arts.
Artistic creations are a result of problem solving. These activities develop reasoning, understanding and further develop problem solving skills necessary for success in any career.
As most arts are collaborative in nature with activities done in a group, children learn to work in a team. They understand their role in the success of the team and develop team spirit.
When children realise that their actions affect other people, they learn to admit their own mistakes and take responsibility for it.

Arty smarty club is a very innovative venture initiated for the overall development of children. I am impressed by the overall setting and design of the Club, which I find provide a nurturing environment for children to learn and interact with one another. Arnav has acquired valuable social skills such as table manners - how to convey his emotions, is now more independent and cooperative. Arnav loved going to the Club. He had so much fun there. Saturdays were always looked forwarded to and the farm trip was the most memorable and fun time he had! He loved the teachers there! Every time I found him engrossed in the club activities with his friends. Arty Smarty Kids Club has helped my son to improve his social skills, build his team work and most importantly the value and need of fitness! The teachers are fun, engaging and responsible . Thank you Sayali for providing such a program!
Krrish doesn't like to be instructed much but enjoys a task if given a freehand. We could find this freedom of expression at Arty Smarty Kids Club. Alternating activities could engage him, maintained his interest and also built a lot of confidence in terms of expression. Most effective is the feedback and communication system through which parents are constantly updated with daily activities, kid's engagement and improvement.

There was marked improvement in Zidaan. He had opened up, striking a conversation with new people, he danced and explored, learned concepts about food (good, nutritious food) and made one himself. He also learned rhythm of drums, etiquettes, table manners and much more.
Thanks to Arty Smarty for its wonderful programme, my son enjoys it a lot. Being a shy person the activities has helped him express and channelised his creative energies in the right direction
