The Art and Language program is designed to provide creative education and skills development through innovative approaches alongside the traditional approaches currently implemented in Nepali education. It operates for 4 months a year, every week with after school activities. There are three sections to the course: ‘Art and Design’, ‘Spoken Word Poetry’ and ‘Drama’.
