She likes making personalized greeting cards, with her drawing, for her friends. We came to know of Nimmy’s art classes who teach art class for little artists in a fun and engaging way from a close family friend, and we made Zara enroll for a trial class. The materials used in the class excited her a lot and we could see it really sparked her interest.”, says Zara’s proud parents.
