Nepal now has a Children’s Art Museum (CAM). Officially opened this week, the art museum is one of a kind space located in the heart of Kathmandu. The art museum is a wonderful addition to the city’s growing art scene.
Located at Hattisar Sadak, the art museum provides children and youth with creative and educational outlets for expressing themselves. They have already done a multitude of creative murals throughout Kathmandu. At CAM’s alphabet workshops, they teach children the letters in the Nepali alphabet. This way the kids learn and appreciate the uniqueness of the Nepali alphabet.
Sneha Shrestha, founder and director of CAM was very enthusiastic to inaugurate the new creative space. She shared that when she was growing up, there was no place in Kathmandu where kids could enjoy art. After being abroad for seven years and coming back to Nepal, she was surprised that there still was not a place for kids to make and enjoy art. So Sneha was very proud to start CAM with her team.
The 1200 sq. ft creative hub has CAM Learning Wall (exposes children to non-traditional art forms), the creativity lab, art supplies corner, a library corner and a rooftop space for artist residency. Children’s Art Museum is doing an open house on June 21, 2014 and June 22, 2014 from 11am onwards.
