The aim of the art walk they host via SeekSherpa is to acquaint all the kids with the various myths and legends from historical texts and popular culture and demonstrate how they translate into art.
If you’re one of those who looks at sculptures and wonders why they are the way they are – why is Shiva’s neck blue, or why Vishnu wears a crown, then this walk is for you.
Understanding history and mythology could be difficult, especially for kids. Send your kids to an amazing journey through time, where they will be told some of the most interesting mythological stories and legends of our folklore, through looking at some chosen artworks on the walk.
Whether it is for the love of art, or for the love of a good story, send your kids to this SeekSherpa art walk and find out what’s really going on in that artwork you see and incite their interest in history and culture with practical knowledge.
Kids, Learners, Explorers (Age: 8 to 13 years)
The ideal age for the experience is from 8-13 years. Please send your kids with water bottles/beverages to keep them hydrated throughout the tour.
Sherpa Fees and entry tickets for children.
