Paintings by APSA children




I was requested to distribute the prizes to the children who had taken part in the art workshop conducted by my friend and fellow aritst Sujata Tibrewala. Sujata (beside me) and M/s Shiela Devraj - Director APSA.
The APSA - ( association for promoting social action) Dream school children come from a deprived background like street children, rag pickers, newspaper boys, household servants, child labourors and generally children in distress. APSA gives them the education and opportunities that any normal child would have had at their age. The paintings were very expressive of their feelings.
Here is a well executed painting by Rajiv, an APSA child. He said that he wanted to see more birds like these flying in his neigbourhood of Vibhithipura lake, which is a sanctuary for rare migratory birds.
Click Pratibimba the Renaissance Group show to take a photo tour of the show, see more paintings by us and the APSA children.
