Pablo Picasso once said that “Every child is an artist,” and he was telling the truth. So this year at GGKLI we started an art club. This art club takes place before classes start and provides an exciting opportunity for kids to learn how to draw and expand their knowledge on art. During each class the kids learn to draw something with step- by-step instructions. They’ve learned how to make the God Ganesh and Diyas for Diwali to Santa Claus for Christmas time. Furthermore, the children learn drawing tips on how to improve their drawings and ways to use shading techniques in order to create more realistic images. Not only does this class teach students, but it also increases their confidence and self-satisfaction and sense of fulfillment. There’s nothing better than to see the image they are making come true on paper.
Debate club at GGKLI is a club where kids of all ages discuss and form opinions on important topics in today’s society like Universal Basic Income and the dilemma of Security vs Privacy. Debate club grows a child’s ability to learn, process, analyze and react to information; as well as helps develop their public speaking and writing skills.
Chess was invented in India probably before the 6th century AD. It is the most popular board game in the world. Chess is a very beneficial game for the brain. It increases concentration and helps to improve the IQ. It also helps to make better decision in the game and in real life.
