Sara was taught in school that there is one ‘right’ way to draw a leaf, a flower or a tree. Way today.
She hopes her books will help children see art as a means to express their unique way of seeing the world. For the ‘Art for Kids’ series of books, Sara has collaborated with some of India’s most talented artists who have generously shared the stories of their lives, helped select their favourite works and explained the inspiration behind them. She hopes that reading these books will encourage children to explore and have fun with art.
