A child is a born artist who needs mere guidance to express his feelings and thoughts on canvas.
Emotions are more accurately revealed when presented artistically. Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, 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 visual world of the child.
The child fantasies and enlivens his thought process using various mediums – like colours, sketches and shading. The world has so much to share.
One has just to keep his/her eyes open, recollect the emotions in tranquility and spread the aura on the canvas with those lively hues and colours. The school is the right place for this purpose.
