ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Dune Kids Art is inspired by Anika Azad who's passion for all things drawing, painting and sketching
began at an early age. She was inspired by her travels around the world, discovering different cultures and her father's love for photography. Anika's personal art journey has been shaped by growing up in Dubai, traveling the world and studying Graphic Design at the Rhode Island School of Design.
Her love for working with kids began when she started creating art projects with her two kids and later worked to create art workshops for kids at international Art Exhibitions while living in Dubai, U.A.E. Back in Toronto, she also established Dune Kids, a unique kids edutainment concept where art, culture and play are integrated to help young children learn more about a global world. During her early career, Anika worked as a Graphic Designer with a leading design agency in downtown Toronto.
Anika believes that art + design education can inspire kids to develop their creative talent and change the world.
