The beauty of ArtBeat is that it gives a chance to all children from Pakistan, from all kinds of backgrounds and also different cultures. They are only selected on the basis of their talent and work. Their interaction with each other is really interesting as they learn from each other and make some great friendships. I give The Little Art great credit for this initiative to bring together these children and giving them the opportunity to work together and explore themselves through art making together
