“Every child is an artist; the problem is staying an artist when you grow up.” – Pablo Picasso
Peace is an experience within. It can be expressed in Art. Though an art has no words yet conveys as well as touches the heart and mind in such a subtle way that one gets full with feelings and emotions.
The whole creation is an art of the Almighty comprising of all the essential ingredients to provide contentment and peace to all the human being who wish to accept these.
Children are just like the crystal clear clean water. You can color it in any color you want. So, how beautiful it would be if they are colored in the color of Peace.
To accomplish it the Youth Peace Fest organized an event on ‘Art for Peace’ at Nigadi, Pune on Thursday, 16th November, 2014, where students from various schools came and participated along with their parents. Two groups were made. One was between 4-8 and the other one between 9-13 years.
A drawing competition on ‘Art for Peace’ was conducted. Every participant was so whole heartedly enjoying the event that they didn’t wish to make it over. All danced and rejoiced for Peace.
For the parents the DVD of YPF event at Rohini, Delhi was shown. They were overwhelmed seeing it.
The event was also covered by the media. Three students from each age group were awarded for the best performances.
