Dipti 3

A self-taught artist, residing in Dubai with an eight-year career in Interior Design always kept me connected to Art. The act of creation always gave me immense pleasure. I’ve always been sensitive to inspiration from reality that resonates with my inner world. Painting is my way of translating this inspiration onto a canvas/paper.

It rarely happens that a mum gets time to create ART along with her little one. Let’s take this time together to CREATE some fun figurative and abstract finger puppets from your little one’s blobs and finger prints! Come along and experience the joy of creating!

OliOli Toddler Fest - Fairytale Science

An OliOli® in-house production, which is an interactive story telling session for toddlers and their parents or guardians. We will play, sing, investigate and explore our way through classic fairy tales. Led by our star imaginators these sessions will be highly interactive and will invite participants to question the fairy tale world much like we do our own world; How did the beanstalk grow so big? Why should we build our houses out of bricks? Why is it so difficult to get a giant turnip out of the ground?

We will dive into these questions during our interactive storytelling sessions, and we will invite the youngest members of the audience to contribute to the story along the way.
