Artifying favourite teachers online

Each one of us shares a unique bonding with that one special teacher in our life. And, as Teachers’ Day is round the corner, everyone is looking for ways to make the day special.

Many are focusing on gifts but there are some creative minds who are expressing this bonding through art by participating in a three-day online art exhibition organised by Touchtalent.com, an online community for art and creativity.

The theme of the exhibition is ‘Tribute to Teachers’, focusing on the teachers who are there through the thick and thin of our eduction and learning and, influence their students to make informed choices. The exhibition opened online from Wednesday and will continue till September 5.

Through this online endeavour, participating artists are ‘Artifying’ their favourite teachers who have inspired them the most, through sketches and paintings. Making the exhibition attention-grabbing are funny and emotional messages on sketches.

Like artist Vysakh Sidharth’s paintings portray the high-end celebs, who have played the roles of teachers in some or the other movies. 

“This will help students relate to their teachers and communicate the right message. Exhibitions are all about exposure and interaction and through this we get an opportunity to explore our creativity,” he says.

Another participant, Gunjan Ashtaputre says, “I am a fine art student and have always been willing to participate in these kind of exhibitions. My art work pays tribute to all the teachers who have shown the path of wisdom. Master Uguay of Kung Fu panda, Yoda from Starwars and Rafiki from Lion King, were the best examples I could present from my art.”

Mohammed Wassem, MD, Touchtalent.com says, “This is a grand opportunity for creative users to be part of this tribute. Through this exhibition we can thank our teachers for making us who we are today. Top 50 artworks will be displayed on the online exhibition and selected entries shall be awarded an online certificate of appreciation from Touchtalent’s editorial team.”

Touchtalent connects creative users in over 192 countries. It has thus far organised more than 10 global online art exhibitions with each generating around a million page views.
