Pavement Art Workshops

Pavement art workshops, are conducted in communal areas. Children of all ages are naturally drawn to the art form; and these workshops provide positive physiological benefits, as they teach children (and adults) how they can open their minds to all possibilities and topics using their imagination. The workshops are collaborative, all inclusive and aid in building self-awareness and confidence for all those that participate.  These workshops can also open conversations with the local community about creating experiences within public spaces.
