Lighthouse After school Workshops:
Our Art workshops are Child-friendly, Fun, Thought Provoking and Most Engaging…to help your child learn faster
Regular after-school workshops at its centre in Mumbai at 314, Powai Plaza, Hiranandani Gardens, Powai
Meticulously designed for 2 age groups:
- Discover Art : 3 to 6 year olds
- Young Artist :6 to 12 year olds
We also conduct specially designed workshops for corporate houses which are fun, easy and stress busting.
We have regular weekend workshops at Sofitel, Grand Hyatt, palladium Hotel, Hyatt Regency and other hotels across Mumbai every Sunday afternoon.
Our uniqueness lies in our approach to art – we focus on the PROCESS and on the JOURNEY TO ENJOY ART rather than only the end art work
Discover Art: 3 – 6 year old: process-oriented art for your child, build confidence and keep art fun!
For this age group, ART is more about EXPLORATION…at this age we don’t believe teaching a child to draw is appropriate. Hence the focus on the PROCESS.
Our approach does not expect particular outcomes. We encourage our little sparks to first EXPLORE the art materials around her – paints, crayons, sponge, brush, basic colours, etc. We gradually inspire them to talk about ‘their IDEAS’ – shapes, colours, contrasting colours, themes from daily life, etc. Simultaneously, depending on the choice of their theme, we begin introducing TECHNIQUES – colour mixing, splatter painting, dabbing, etc.
But all this time most importantly, we let them explore art in their own way while we stand back. We believe FREEDOM and ENCOURAGEMENT at this age do have a marked impact on the child’s self-confidence and enjoyment in art and learning as they prepare for older years.
Our Discover Art guided program helps pre and early schoolers to:
- Increase their self-confidence and self esteem
- Learn to follow directions
- Familiarise them with art material
- Stay on task and focus
- Gain fine motor skills
- Develop their vocabulary
- Enhance their communication skills
- Encourage their love for arts and learning

ART programs in Schools
Lighthouse has designed a world class Art and Craft curriculum for schools from Pre-primary to Grade 5. This can be integrated with the school curriculum through which the child can discover and interpret the world around them in their own way.
The curriculum offers a new mode of learning by giving children opportunities to think as they explore, express and interpret art with its different aspects.
The Lighthouse Art and Craft Curriculum is already running in a few schools across Maharashtra.
