Kolam exponent Gayathri Sankaranarayan is usually busy taking kolam classes for children during the summer. This year however, she has decided to learn from other experts.
She says, “I was fascinated by the kolams and rangoli patterns drawn by Archana Puranik, an expert based out of Pune. The kolams she draws are very intricately designed and include 3D kolams too. I have been learning from her online for almost a month now”.
Gayathri, says she was initially skeptical about how online classes would work out for children. “Classes with Archana has changed my outlook. I have figured out a way to make children understand and am sure that they will be able to perfect their art and achieve the same level of hand eye coordination”.
She adds, “The classes will not be for more than an hour everyday. Children will find it difficult to concentrate beyond that”.
She is a resident of C. I. T. Colony, Mylapore and can be contacted at 9840118711.
