Children's Art Exhibition presented by Indiaart at Nehru Centre, Mumbai in June 2014

The project of "Children's Art" initiated by Indiaart and "Art to Schools" initiated by Art India Foundation aims at creating awareness and appreciation of art and aesthetics among children, stimulate creative thinking, build an urge to go beyond the obvious and start thinking out of the box. This is being done by arranging interaction of artists with children in a format that consists of demonstration of the art form as well as a dialogue with the students. Apart from this, a separate section for "Children's Art" has been set up on and a dedicated web page is created for each shortlisted child to showcase the ongoing work. This will act as a huge encouragement to the children who will strive to create great works of art to show to the world.

Indiaart presented the first Children’s Art exhibition at Nehru Centre, Worli, Mumbai. Entries were invited from children between the age group of 5 to 15. Around 70 artworks were selected for display at the show at Nehru Centre. The selection was based on criteria such as originality of expression and creative content.

The response to the Call for Entries was very enthusiastic. Entries came in not only from various parts of India but also from out of India. The exhibition was very well received by the participating children, parents, art teachers and society at large.

The concluding ceremony included distribution of certificates and a talk by senior artist Shri. Prabhakar Kolte who conducted an open session with children and parents.
