The art show themed “We Promise to Take Care of Our Earth”, an art and crafts exhibition of Little Explorers AMI Montessori House of Children will be held on August 1 and 2, 2016 at the Lionel Wendt. In addition to the individual paintings and crafts by the children, aged 1 ½ to 5 years old, they have also collaborated to create group paintings, which will be auctioned at the exhibition in aid of causes related to environmental conservation in Sri Lanka.
All the paintings depict sea life, insects, endangered birds and animals as well as environmentally friendly and harmful actions. The crafts were created using throw-away material collected by the children. Learning about the environment, conservation and the importance of recycling went hand-in-hand, for the children, with preparing for the exhibition.
