Indian Deities Writing Workshop


In partnership with Writers in the Schools, this writing workshop will focus on Asia Society Texas Center’s current exhibition, Transcendent Deities of India: Everyday Occurrence of the Divine. An expert-trained author will be your children’s teacher for this interactive session, encouraging young minds’ imagination and literary talents. This program will help visitors gain a greater connection to the artwork and learn to express themselves through the written word.
