Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya (Prince of Wales Museum) will present children with the unique opportunity to explore the rich and vast treasures of art objects showcased in the exhibition titled East Meets West. The exhibition features a selection of Asian and European art from the Tata Collection.

Children will be introduced to traditional art forms from the Tata Art Collection like Himalayan Thanka paintings, Far Eastern style of ceramic paining, Indian handloom fabrics and design through a three-day workshop module.

They will create their own unique works of art in all these styles, using their own imagination to produce individual expression within each art form. The workshops are being jointly conducted by the Museum and The Pomegranate Workshop. The age group for the workshops is 8 - 13 years.
