Children have an innate curiosity to learn new skills and an enthusiasm to understand the world by engaging their senses of touch, sight, hearing, smell and taste. At the Paediatric Oncology Department of Sri Shankara Cancer Hospital & Research Centre, Bangalore, children are encouraged to participate in learning activities that are fun, educational and creative.
The department conducted a clay modelling activity on 4th September 2021 for the children currently undergoing treatment for childhood cancers. This gave an opportunity for the children to learn about colours, engage their tactile senses and distract their minds from the discomfort of their illness and treatment.
We are pleased to share the pictures of the impressive clay art made by our children.
