An art workshop was organized in Newa Chhen in Patan on Saturday. The event, showcasing art work of school children under various themes was organized by Community Children Art School (CCAS) on the occasion of the International Children’s Day 2012.
Shedding light on the purpose of the workshop, Sarita Dangol, freelance artist and founder of CCAS explained, “The workshop is an open event for school children. We also had children from orphanages participate in the event today. The children were overwhelmed to express their feelings on a canvas to everyone present here. Such events create platforms for aspiring children, or at least act as a medium of exchanging ideas and showcasing talent.”
CCAS has been organizing similar workshops since 2009 in different venues across the Kathmandu valley. CCAS will also be featuring selected paintings from the workshop in the 17th Kanagawa Benela 2012 in Japan.
