Technology today has changed the way children pursue hobbies. Kids are immersed in electronic gadgets from a very young age, thereby missing out on the joys of hand-created art and craft. Research has shown that art activities from an early age help build motor skills, visual learning, decision making skills and innovation - apart from experiencing the joy of creating art for art’s sake!
Mission and Vision
Since 2015, MakeArtWork has been organising the annual childrens' art event "Kreative Kids On-the-Spot Drawing Competition" for kids aged 5 to 15 years. Our aim is to provide a platform for kids to come together and express themselves through art in a friendly, fun-filled community based atmosphere.
Through this event we create awareness amongst children of the importance of giving back to the community. Part of the proceeds of each event are donated to the not-for-profit organization Crafting For A Cure.
