The Indian School always encourages student participation in diverse competitions for their holistic development. On 14 February 2023, a team of six students participated in an inter school Art Fest, ‘creART’ organised by the Hindustan Times School at Ramjas School, RK Puram. The event saw the participation of more than 100 students of classes III -VIII from 27 schools.

The delicate brush strokes were awe inspiring. The images were unbiased, true and innocent. The confluence of such a large number of young artists triggered fun, frolic and festivities. And yet, there was a sense of purpose and seriousness, as the children gave shape to their deep inner thoughts.

Meanwhile, a workshop on tie and dye printing techniques was organised for the teachers. They were apprised of the origin and history of tie and dye printing in India. They were able to create beautiful effects on cotton cloth and made vibrant patterns using the technique. They thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and were able to express their creativity through the myriad hues of colour.

 There were categories in the competition for primary to middle schoolers:


Category 1

A magic show was organised to keep the students entertained, until the result was announced. 

The students exuded confidence as their colourful strokes brought their beautiful thoughts and ideas on paper.  While only a few emerged victorious, everybody present, understood the significance of participation and giving their best. This fun filled event witnessed an enthusiastic participation by all students.
