I am in the process of designing an art activity book called My First Art Expression. It is researched and written by artist, art teacher and my guru Neha Asher.
Neha aunty (as I have called her all my life) has been teaching at her Art school in Pune, India for the past 20 years. She has been an inspiration to many like me. Neha aunty has taught me to love and enjoy whatever I do and I am grateful to have her as a mentor and friend.
Here is a glimpse of her paintings. Most of them find a nucleus around ‘The Woman’ and that is what I love about her style.

Last week my young friends and I spent four lazy afternoons trying out some of the activities from her book. We sure had a blast as we learnt about coloring, making our own stamps, doodling and making paper bags!
People, I give you the brightest kids I know: Aditi, Shreya, Aashi, Succhay and Dhanvin!
The activity book will hit stands by the end of April 2013. Stay tuned!
