“If one could say it with words, there would be no reason to paint.”
Art is a beautiful and powerful way to express all the creativity our world offers us. And the Gitanjali Devashray Art Exhibition perfectly encapsulated this idea. The Chief Guest of our exhibition was Ms. Rebecca Gupta, a certified Life Coach, Cognitive Behavioral Therapist and Artist. With the theme as ‘Creatures and Critters’, the exhibition was a wonderful display of the artworks and crafts made by the students of the school from Grade 1-10. The presence of the Director, Gitanjali Devashray and Gitanjali Devshala, Madhvi Chandra Ma’am, the leaders of our institution, our teachers and parents made the exhibition truly exuberant.
These creations were not only from the senior grades, but from the tiny tots as well. Beautifully made paintings adorned the walkway, made from all types of mediums-watercolour, acrylic, colour pencils, and oil pastels. All of these have been painted by the students - this has been quite a productive year! There were displays of all the other crafts we have made - from Halloween masks to colourful Easter Eggs. It took a moment to take in the vibrancy of the exhibits, as there was so much of everything! The rooms were decorated in hues of greens and blues, to enhance the theme, and the works of the students stood out wonderfully.
The aesthetically curated entrance with its vivid artworks and craft models, heightened by the light and sound effect was truly spectacular. As one walked around the rooms,
one could appreciate all the details of the skillfully done sequin art, fondly examine the hand-made tiaras, and admire the designs of the diyas, all of these being done by the younger classes. Then there were the intricate doodles, the bottle arts and colourful photo frames. It spoke volumes about the skill, dedication and commitment of our art teachers who have painstakingly contributed towards our skill development. All of it was quite a vision to behold, and one walked out feeling rejuvenated - for there is always colour in this world and where there is colour, there is hope!
