Panaji: Purple Kaleidoscope has interesting Inclusive Art Workshops and a Display of Sensory Activation Products that have been curated from January 8 to 13, which has been 4 abuzz with creativity!
Art Able’s vision for an art space isn’t confined to canvases and easels. At Art Able Gallery, it’s about shattering barriers and weaving a tapestry of inclusivity where everyone can create, connect, and celebrate.
Whether you have physical or neurodiverse abilities, Siddhant Shah welcomes you with open arms at Purple Fest 2024. Their inclusive art workshops offer a vibrant playground for expression, with “nonsense movement therapy” shaking off inhibitions and “sensory art” igniting your senses.
Siddhant Shah says, “We look at this space to use art as a medium of enabling change and how art can be taught to children with special needs and also we have artworks which are tactile, which are from Serendipity Arts Festival which is another organization who works with children. We also have a lot of sensory products. The response has been phenomenal. We have over 300 kids come in one day and we have almost over 1000 kids come over and it has been just amazing.”
But Art Able Gallery isn’t just about participation – it’s about inspiring others to follow suit. Workshops for teachers and educators empower them to integrate art-based learning into their curriculum, echoing the spirit of India’s National Education Policy 2020.
And then there’s Tactile’s artwork. These tactile masterpieces transcend the limitations of sight, inviting everyone to explore art through touch, feel and experience. It’s a testament to Art Able’s unwavering belief that art should be a language understood by all.
So, gather your schoolmates, invite your friends, and step into the Cables Gallery. Let the colours dance, the music move you, and the joy of creation wash over you. Dhan Shah’s invitation is clear: come, paint your own masterpiece, and take a vibrant slice of inclusion home with you!
