EXPRESSIONS 2016: Art Show and Fundraiser
The Annual Art Show provides a platform to the creative geniuses of our school, and at the same time gives an opportunity to the students to give back to society.
The school organised EXPRESSIONS, the annual Art Show and Fundraiser at Lalit Kala Academy, Aliganj. The chief guest for the event was Mrs. Aashrita Dass, Vice Principal and officiating Principal, La Martiniere Girls’ College, Lucknow, an eminent educationist, instructional leader and administrator par excellence. She inaugurated the event on 9 December, 2016 at 4 pm.
The Chief Guest and all guests to the event were awestruck with the creativity and genius of the young artists of the school. She praised the skill and imagination of the school’s artistic students and the school’s Visual Arts Program. Mrs. Dass blessed the children and encouraged them to keep up their skill and the spirit of charity with which the event was organized.
The Annual Art Show provides a platform to the creative geniuses of our school, and at the same time gives an opportunity to the students to give back to society. A small portion of the funds raised by the sale of the paintings shall go to the student artists to encourage them, and the remaining shall be given away for charity. The students hope to raise and donate more than what they did from last year’s Art Show – Rs. 1,70,000/- in aid of the Nepal Earthquake Relief.
