Nanhe Kalakar 3.O (2023) Overview
Art is a hypernym for “ कर्ता कर्म क्रिया” implying thereby that Art is a gamut of human actions, the resultant creation of human actions and also the creator itself which refines the human character and acumen. The positive impact of art on children is thoroughly researched and well documented and thus it is safe to say that Art plays a significant role in development of child’s cognitive, emotive, communication, creative thinking, problem solving and social skills.
Comprehending the significance of Art for every Child, we designed our initiative “Nanhe Kalakaar: Bachpan ke badhte Kadam”. This initiative is aimed to promote art among children and ignite their creative spirits. Nanhe Kalakaar is a combination of art based educational programs and an exhibition to showcase the young talent thereby unleashing the boundless potential of budding artists.
To make art an integral part of everyday life for children in order to foster creativity, improve understanding of complex issues and elevate cultural awareness. We at Abhyutthanam believe that the tender minds of children merits cushion of art in the current challenging and stressful atmosphere. We envision to embrace art in all its forms in order to transform children into more creatively vibrant, expressive, inclusive and responsible human beings.
Through our Nanhe Kalakaar initiative, we aims create a tangible impact on children in following ways:
Empower children to express themselves and build confidence through art.
1. Provide an equal opportunity to all children from diverse background to showcase their creative talent thereby fostering the virtue of inclusivity among children.
2. Inspire a lifelong passion for the art and potential career paths through insightful mentorship programs.
3. Strengthen communities through art engagement and beautification projects.
4. Create a supportive and collaborative network for young artists.
5. Develop critical thinking, self-expression, creative problem-solving, and communication skills through artistic endeavors.
6. Enable children to manage stress, depression and anxiety through Art.
To achieve the stated objectives, we undertake multiple activities under our Nanhe Kalakaar Initiative.
Through our School Bharo Andolan, we assist children to study in schools under Right to Education Act, 2009. In addition to stated benefits of art for children, we believe that children who participate in art programs tend to perform better academically. Art improves concentration, discipline and attention to detail which are crucially beneficial for kids to achieve academic excellence.
We therefore curate and conduct art workshops for children on wide range of art forms like painting, pottery, photography, ramp walk, dancing, digital art, etc. We facilitate such workshops and session through professional artists and educators.
