6 Institutions For Artistic Children in Nairobi
Growing up, I loved reading and my siblings were drawn to music and machinery. In one way or another, our lives and careers gravitate towards these areas as our parents encouraged us to pursue them. Encouraging your child’s interest will set the tone of how they view their strengths and how they pursue them.
One way of supporting them is enrolling them in holiday camps, workshops, schools where they can meet like-minded people and enrich their skills.
Here is a list of art schools in Nairobi where you can enrol your child in either music, dancing, drawing among others.
