Partner A Master Artist-Mentor Program' An Art Exhibition
PARTNER A MASTER Artist-Mentor program is an initiative that explores the notion of creativity as applied imagination for children in private and public schools. Conceived as an annual project by the Art1st Foundation and the Mohile Parikh Center in Mumbai and Delhi, this entails introducing children to artist studios as spaces of imaginative learning, discovery and transformative thinking. Employing art as a pedagogical tool, this initiative emphasizes on visual literacy, collective learning and the role of the arts in cognitive processes and creative competencies. Contemporary artists and children work together on projects through workshops that open out processes of art-making through different mediums, methods and concepts. In such an interactive environment of learning, young children are able to understand that contemporary art is part of a cultural dialogue that concerns larger contextual frameworks such as personal and cultural identity, family, community, and nationality.
