Krishna Nupur (meaning the anklets of Lord Krishna) Cultural Trust was established by me in 1995 and registered in 1996 to enable myself to carry out art activities particularly for children.
We began with Painting contests and culutral events and competitions which included singing, dance, mini-theatre and crafts. In due course we have moved on to conducting workshops in art for children mostly from surrounding schools and providing free art materials to talented children.
Bringing in prominent persons from various fields
of specialisation to interact with the children
during the workshops have helped the children to gain
better insight into various techniques, manners and styles
encouraging them to express themselves best in
their favourite mediums or ways.
Our aim is to help inspire children to be creative
and achieve excellence in all round perfomance
through the benefits of art and aesthetics.
We welcome suggestions and offers to use suitable
space within the city for conducting workshops
on art for children.
Krishna Nupur is also working on bringing out
art and activity books for children shortly.
As an individual I continue to give free classes
whenever need arises to underprevileged or
special children in their residential schools
or children's homes.
Presently, once a week,I am teaching art to
an enthusiastic group of 15 Polio affected children
aged 8 to 15 at an orthopaedic school in
Chennai. We have a great time together.
