How does our Art Studio programme impact the participants? Here is what some of them had to say:
Partner-a-Master programme was a vessel which took me on a journey of exploring the different parts of my mind. It has taught me to think out-of-the-box and forced me to apply my mind...it enabled us to work under renowned artists from whom we can learn to critically examine our environments and our lives.
All the artists were very warm and helpful, shaping our thinking and our art projects through so many innovative ways! Being part of this program was one of the best things that happened to me and coloured my life, in the same way as the rainbow colours the sky.
This kind of exposure a child gets nowhere. I got this kind of exposure because my parents were artists and I knew what kind of work happens in studios. Many of my friends in college had never been to an artists’ studio. They didn’t know why they were there. Most of them were in Art College because they were not good in their studies and they thought they would get a job somewhere after doing fine arts. This kind of exposure helps kids select the right stream for their career. When I went to college, I started painting but I thought I should have done applied arts but I didn’t know about it. So this kind of exposure is definitely needed.
