Welcome to Sketched on a Napkin (SON), an I M (www.IMpossiblemall.com) company dedicated to
transforming lives through education, experiences, and exposure.
SON’s mission is to inspire and develop creativity and innovation across disciplines through programs, courses, and workshops. The relationship between creativity, innovation and
