“Every child is an Artist” – Pablo Picasso

At Iqra, we strive to nurture and harness creativity in each and every student by providing the children with a range of opportunities to invoke their artistic expression and imagination. Last week, Year 1 participated in Art Week, whereby the children used art to express their connection to Allah and their own Islamic identity. What followed from a very fruitful and honest discussion about identity and what makes us, us – was an exciting creative piece where the children delved into their inner identities and their individual connection to their faith.

The children thoroughly enjoyed creating their artistic pieces. It was great to see the children using art in meaningful ways.
