testimonials

“The art therapy workshop by Edmundo Santos helped me to let go of thoughts which no longer served
me, to connect with people more compassionately and with less judgement and more
understanding, to feel grateful for abundance I possess and to forgive those
whom I feel have wronged me. It also helped me forgive, appreciate and
love myself more. At the end of the workshop, I could see clearly a promising future unfolding before me.”

Gayathri Jayan,
Chartered Accountant

“I witnessed great improvements in a special needs child’s abilities
at Amaravathy School. Working with art has shown us change can happen.”

Kavitha George
Volunteer and Lead , Amaravathy School

“The students were a little nervous in the beginning, it was the time
for them with art. But the mentors friendly approach and manner
of getting them to understand and express themselves through art, changed the scenario.”

Johnson, Coordinator,
St. Joseph’s LP School Kumbalangi

“There is a marked improvement in the drawing abilities and general
performance of the children. By understanding the concepts of colours,
they are able to visualise poems and other concepts at school easier
and put them down on paper.”

Rosalind Shermy S
Teacher, Amaravathy School, Fort Kochi
