In 2006, London based artist Alla went to Kenya to paint. Working in rural communities, she began giving art workshops to children in schools and discovered that art and creativity education was limited. Alla's belief that the arts and creativity and essential to children's development led her to establish MASK (Mobile Art School in Kenya) in 2007.

to recognise as an essential part of human growth and development."
