Exploring Education through the Arts | February 15, 2015 | Bangalore
Since 2012, India Foundation for the Arts has been supporting Government school teachers across Karnataka to enrich classroom learning with the arts, under the Kali Kalisu initiative of our Arts Education programme. We invite you to an exciting line-up of presentations by four teachers, from four different districts, who will share the stories of their projects in their respective schools. These projects seek to connect classroom education, local art forms, the lived experiences of students and the environment that surrounds them, thus empowering the students to think and express creatively. We invite educators, teachers, parents and all of you for an evening of inspiration.
