Play for Children & Adults

There is much said about play. I have a few opinions to share.

  • Play increases literacy.  Children use words they are learning from various inputs in their world: parents, school, movies, computers, digital games etc. 
  • Play helps adults and children to bond
  • When children play they can call their own shots, practice their techniques and take risks
  • Play is a door to creativity and the super natural.

We want to invite you to see a new and exciting visual art exhibition about play. We have titled the exhibit:
