Students who visited the exhibition also got a chance to draw their art on paper. “These 1200 students have worked hard to showcase their art works and each student has at least one or two works in the exhibition” said Art teacher Anil Joshi. This is a way to nurture their talent and encourage them to involve in other activities, he added.
Not only paintings but also handicrafts are on display.
