Art Show & Fundraiser
The Arts Department and students of Vidyatree Modern World College, Aliganj, organised an Art Show in aid of Nepal Earthquake Victims, at Lalit Kala Akademi, from 8 to 10 May.
The Art Show is the outcome of the school’s world class Arts Curriculum and hard work put in by the students. The students and the management collectively decided to contribute all profits from the sale of the paintings to victims of the recent Nepal Earthquake.
The Art Show had 80+ paintings on exhibit and sale. Paintings on exhibit, priced from Rs. 2000 to Rs. 45,000, were all by the students of the school, right from Grade Nursery to Grade 12, with many first time painters.
The show was inaugurated by Dr. Navneet Sehgal IAS, Principal Secretary Information, along with his wife Dr. Vandana Sehgal, distinguished architect and art lover.
The chief guests and other guests were awed by the quality of the paintings coming from school students. Most people remarked that they did not expect that school students can produce such beautiful works of art.
For every painting sold 1/3rd of the proceed went to the student artist and 2/3rd went towards charity. In all the students and the school raised Rs.1,50,000 as profit.
