We are delighted to invite you to a Students' Exhibition and a one-day Seminar Who is the Arts Teacher? which mark the culmination of Partner-a-Master, a seven-month long artist mentorship programme IFA undertook last year with Mumbai-based Art1st Foundation. As part of this programme, 25 students, including 10 from non-profit schools, engaged with one artist every month, for 7 months. The artists in turn invited the students into their creative spaces, shared their work philosophies, interacted with them and facilitated the creation of participants' artworks. The participating artists included Suresh Jayaram, Ravikumar Kashi, Surekha, C F John, Biju Jose, George Mathen and Suresh Kumar G.
The exhibition will showcase works of 25 student participants
produced as a result of these interactions with the artists.
