Presenting - Art Arattai Aarpattam 2011!
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.
Pablo Picasso (1881 - 1973)
And isn’t that the holy truth of all our lives! But hey, Here’s a reason for you to cheer up! The fourth edition of NalandaWay’s annual cultural extravaganza, Art Arattai Aarpattam 2011 is back again.
With a whole range of exciting, fun-filled activities - right from children’s film festivals, inter-school competitions, story-telling sessions and skits – being planned for 14 days, there is really only one place you should be…with us!
While our everyday chores often leave us with little time to engage in art and related activities, it has always been one of the best ways to reach out and connect with children. Remember the Jungle Book soundtrack? A child is learning / In a very special way he’s beginning to see all the things in the world today. And that, dear friends, is what art is really about, right? Interpreting what we see in our own,
unique, distinct ways and making meaning out of our experiences – and that is exactly what AAA will work towards. Towards creating a space for children, families and teachers to have new experiences of the arts, to experiment, to challenge, to be inspired and to have fun together.
Art, Arattai, Aarpattam 2011, the Children’s Festival of Dance, Drama, Music and Film, will be inaugurated Monday, July 18, at 6.30 pm, at the Museum Theatre, Egmore. Some of the eminent personalities who will be a part of Art, Arattai, Aarpattam 2011 include Anil Srinivasan, Naresh Iyer and Unni Krishnan, Bombay Jayashri and Padmashri Malavika Sarukkai, amongst others.
