We want to share with you two helpful information that will help your family! Hope you find it useful.
Ajai Ananthan is a local student from Parkland School District. Ajai is an autistic young adult who discovered his interest in art accidentally in the summer of 2017 when he was struggling with anxiety and emotional regulation.
His mom introduced him to painting as form of therapy and he very quickly fell in love with it! With help and guidance from his Mom, Ajai started creating canvas art using acrylic paint and a variety of multi-media such as buttons, beads, beans, glitter and more.
At HTS Balvihar, we support Ajai by inviting him to have a booth during our events like Dussehra celebrations. We want to continue our love for his arts. Please purchase his creations by clicking on the tab below.
