  • Exercises, work sheets and problems
  • Sketch, draw, paint, design, photograph and filmmaking
  • Cognitive skill explorations
  • Educational trips, educational tours
  • Case studies
  • Jamming with storytellers, leaders and innovators

Why is Monalisa a masterpiece
Observe the veins of a leaf, branches of a tree and roads of a city and expand the context.
Study best and worst innovations across the world, discuss and redevelop.
