Italian polymath Leonardo da Vinci has rightly said, “Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.”
A child is a born artist who needs guidance to canvas his/her feelings and thoughts. Emotions are more accurately revealed when presented artistically. Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder and each and every piece of art enlivens the surroundings to its fullest. Admiration and guidance are the two forces which give a boost to the children. The children enliven their thought process using various mediums like colours, sketches and shading.
The world has so much to share. Just keep your eyes open, recollect the emotions in tranquillity and spread the aura on the canvas with those lively hues and colours. The school is the right place which is the stepping stone for the success.

In 2001, she founded a state-of-the-art educational research and innovation organization, Chrysalis, that envisions letting every child awaken his/her human potential.
Chitra stated that school leaders as educationists should not only be able to provide a conducive learning environment to children to identify their innate potential but also dream to ensure that every child becomes a lover of learning lifelong. Host school principal Seema Jerath said, ‘Education of affective domains – the heart and the spirit has been long overlooked.
There is a need to raise the emotional and spiritual quotient of our learners. A solitary fantasy can transform a million realities. The destiny of India is being shaped in our schools. You can count the seeds in an apple, but you can never tell how many apples you will get from that seed. Each school leader is that seed with limitless possibilities’.
