The artists, the youngest aged 4 years, have created their artwork using crayons, pastels, pencils, pens, watercolours, oil paints, acrylics, mixed media on paper, wood and canvas.
Mr. Atray, motivational speaker and author, viewed each and every painting and also interacted with the artists individually.
The artists were further encouraged by his very motivating short talk. Congratulating the participants, he said, ”Creativity is one of the 6 C’s – values that are key to a successful life. It is quite heartening and inspiring to see so much creativity on display here.”
He also exhorted the participants, especially the youth, to recognise and celebrate their strengths. Every individual is beset by problems in life but to retain one’s creativity under adverse conditions is laudable. He emphasised that meditation should be an important part of our lives and this habit should be inculcated from infancy.
Mr.Atray also launched an app ‘Bama Gallery’.
Anand Sharma, Director, Bama Academy, felicitated the students from the 1st batch of the Academy , the instructors and all those who have helped the institution.
