Get set for a visual treat

The Karnataka Chitrakala Parishat is organising Chitra Santhe on January 5, 8 am to 7 pm at Karnataka Chitrakala Parishat, Kumara Krupa Road.

In its attempt to make art more affordable and bring in closer to the art lovers, the Parishat, through festivals like Chitra Santhe, aims at developing and fostering Indian visual arts (traditional, modern and contemporary) and promote research, preservation and in-depth study of various visual art forms. The Santhe encourages the interaction of artists and art lovers drawn from across the country. About 2,000 artists are expected to participate and not less than two lakh people gather to witness the fair. 

The main focus of this Santhe is bringing the artists on a single platform to demonstrate and showcase their creativity and contributions towards art. It also identifies and encourages up-and-coming artists and helps educate people about art and propagates the importance of art in life and promotes interest in visual arts.

Another advantage is that the artists from the rural areas across the country have the opportunity to show their work. This is the eleventh consecutive year that the ‘Santhe’ is being held.

This year, Deccan Herald and Prajavani, are organising a painting competition for the participants of Chitra Santhe, in association with Chitrakala Parishat, on January 5, 10 am, in the senior, junior and adult categories. There will also be demo classes on calligraphy, origami, cartooning, mask-making and caricature at Chitrakala Parishat on Sunday. For details, call Jagannatha Joise on 9845553848 and BA Ravi 9448159346.
