Children’s programmes generally have a freshness of their own. When their paintings and drawings are displayed, the exhibition hall has a festive mood.
Children’s exhibition on 26th February 2010 at Kalyani art gallery of Prabal Pramanik’s Academy of Arts certainly looked liked a festival.
The children enjoyed their art works that were displayed. These colourful creations that adorned the panels were not only refreshing to look at but also quite thought provoking.
Subjects, simple to serious have been tackled by the young artists who ranged from seven year olds to sixteen year olds.
Village theme was popular and interesting houses, gardens schools, hospitals and even post boxes were drawn by children who obviously enjoyed doing so. The presence of hills in the backdrop of nearly every village drawn show the young artists were from hill area.
Animals galore at the panels that displayed childrens artistic creations of animals. Some children showed remarkable clarity of thought and artistic sense when drawing animals.
Birds, elephants, tiger, rabbit, deer and many other animals were drawn, and coloured by children with skill and artistic sense.
Anti smoking posters made by children saying a firm “No” to smoking habbit were revealing and impressive. The bad results of smoking have been shown by the children in their own manner, with often a touch of humour.

Notable pictures were a man smoking and then the cigarette smoking the man, and the posters showing the after effects of smoking. The subject for senior group in 2010 was a critical one, - World peace.
Most of the entries were stunning indeed. World peace can be a reality when all the religious respect each other, and this theme was displayed in very bold manner. There was a beautiful picture of Gautam Buddha by a thoughtful student, who understood that Buddha’s message of harmony and mercy can bring peace in the world. A interesting picture showed accurately drawn flags of different countries around the candle of peace.
A novel idea was presented in a picture depicting a “world peace train” going through different destinations in different countries.
Those on environment depicted interesting presentations of “save the trees movement”, and focused on the evils of pollution. The children drew pictures on smoke pollution, water pollution, and noise pollution showing their consciousness about this vital and sensitive issue.
It is important to note that the children drew and painted made these pictures at “Sit and draw” art programme.
These colourful and bold presentations prove that the children of this remote area that had very little exposure from the outside world till recent times, are becoming very much conscious about their world and have the talent to express their ideas successfully through beautiful artistic creations.
Dhar block, a hilly rural area, that was considered the most under developed block of Punjab is now advancing much more rapidly on the cultural front than any other area in Punjab, and is gaining recognition in national and international sphere due to the efforts of Prabal Pramanik’s Academy of Arts.
When common people are repeatedly exposed to sophisticated art displays, there is a gradual change in their mental setup. We have noticed this fact. The villagers start enjoying art and enter a real hear to reserved only for the privileged section of the society. Art gallery for villagers and art activities for villagers have many positive aspects that contribute to the progress of mankind. The cultural gap between rich and poor is ranowed down. The villagers develop a better concept of the world and it helps in the personality development, especially of the village children Who participate in cultural activities.
