On February 3, 2024, 24 students of classes 4, 5 and 11 embarked on a captivating  journey of artistic discovery as they visited the 15th edition of India Art Fair, accompanied by their art teachers Mr Shankar Sarkar and Ms Parul Singh. The sprawling NSIC Exhibition Grounds at Okhla, served as the vibrant venue for this cultural extravaganza, drawing in art enthusiasts and aficionados from far and wide. The theme of the art fair was “Harmony in a Melting Pot”.

The NSIC grounds buzzed with energy as the students explored various artworks like paintings, sculptures, videos, and installations. Stepping into the bustling fairgrounds, our students were greeted by a kaleidoscope of colours and textures, with each exhibiting a unique and compelling narrative. From intricate paintings to awe-inspiring sculptures, mesmerising videos, and thought-provoking installations, the fair boasted a rich tapestry of artistic expressions that captivated the imagination of our budding artists. With wide-eyed wonder, they traversed through the labyrinth of galleries and art installations, each step unveiling new realms of creativity and innovation. Engaging with artists and asking questions, they gained insights into the creative process and different art forms. Filled with inspiration, the students left the fair with new ideas and a deeper appreciation for art. They returned to The Indian School eager to apply what they learned, making the India Art Fair 2024 a memorable and enriching experience in their artistic journey. 

On their return to The Indian School, the students couldn’t wait to share their experiences with their classmates and teachers. They eagerly discussed the artworks they had seen, the artists they had met, and the ideas they had been inspired by. This exchange of thoughts and perspectives further enriched their understanding of art and fostered a sense of community and camaraderie among them.
