Symphony Music and Art School will hold a free Easter egg painting and hunt on this Easter Sunday from 4 to 5pm.  The event is free to all children over four years of age.

School director Sharon Chang said opening the music school to children on Easter Sunday was not so much about religion, but  about making children happy and exposing them to music.

The event will take place at the Symphony Music School and Showroom at #243 Street 51 in BKK1. While admission is free, reservations are required by telephone at 023 727 345 or by e-mail to: [email protected]

“We just want to create many different kinds of events in the school to gather our students to be happy and they can have a chance to learn more about music and art through the event,” Chang said.

Symphony teacher Joanna Neds said children will get acquainted first, followed by an introduction to Easter.

“We have done research on egg painting and how the Easter holiday is celebrated in different countries. On Sunday, we will start by letting the kids get to know each other first then we will give them a brief introduction about Easter and the fun part of it,” Neds said.  “We will have a big poster of different lines and colours with the meaning of each. The kids will receive a piece of paper with two egg-shapes on it and after they understand the meaning of each line and colour, and then they will draw their own line and choose their own favourite colour to draw on the paper. Later on, they will apply that colour on the eggs.”

Chang said following egg painting, the Easter egg hunt will begin, using chocolate instead of eggs.

“We think that the kids will be excited and happy when they find their chocolate.”
