The 9-day Children’s Festival began at Jawahar Kala Kendra (JKK). Around 60 children between the ages of 5-8 years old and ages of 9 and 14 participated in a Painting Workshop conducted by Mr. Manoj Joshi. The children learned how to draw and colour animals like horse, cow, peacock etc. Later in the workshop, the children also drew their idea of ‘Dream India’. Over the course of the 3-day workshop, children will learn how to make trees, pots, animals, leaves and much more. The Children’s Festival will be on till 13 January.
On the occasion, Director General, JKK, Ms. Kiran Soni Gupta said that it is very heartening to see a large number of participants for the workshop. Parents need to nurture their children’s creative thinking. This helps in not only relieving stress from academic pressure but also lets their imagination run wild. The workshop is teaching them drawing as per the principles of art and aims to connect maximum children to art. Additional Director General (Technical), JKK, Mr. Furqan Khan was also present on the occasion.
Artist, Mr. N.L. Verma said that by using even the basic shapes like squares, circles, triangles the children can draw even the most artistic and complex objects with ease.
Artist, Mr. Joshi said that the workshop will teach the children how to look at objects in nature and put them on paper.
