Lotus After School Activities in Dubai

A child’s brain consists of two divisions; left brain for logical thinking and analytical processes and right for creativity and emotional perception. Usually, regular schooling only develops the left brain but based on research, kids should also be exposed to any form of arts as they mature so that their right brain will be as developed as the left, thus achieving the full potential of the mind.

Lotus is now introducing the best way to enhance your child’s creativity in fun and enjoyable way through our kid’s art courses.

Children aged 7 – 12 yrs old can sign up for this afterschool activity.
