Naga artists celebrate World Arts Day
Dimapur, April 15 (EMN): Along with the rest of the world, Artsy Naga School of Fine Arts at Chekiye village, Dimapur, celebrated ‘World Arts Day’ in the school premises on Thursday.
Speaking to Eastern Mirror, the school’s proprietor Tunavi Achumi shared that the idea was to provide a platform for all artists to come together and observe World Arts Day. It was with this objective that they have come up with the idea called #sharedcanvas.
“We thought maybe the artists can sit together and implement their ideas on a shared canvas,” he said. He also informed that it is for the first time that the school is celebrating the event with the participation of 21 artists.
While the school has not been officially inaugurated, he said “we did not want to miss the opportunity to celebrate World Arts Day”. He informed that the school would be officially inaugurated tentatively by next week and commence the classes by May first week.
Sharing about the school, Achumi said that they actually provide curatorial foundation and organise exhibitions besides helping the artists meet their clients by providing platforms.
“We thought it is an important task for us to educate children from the lower stages and this is one of the reasons we came up with the school of fine arts,” he said adding that arts education is important and the school courses included for beginners, junior, sub-junior, senior and advanced diploma.
In a similar programme, Mokokchung celebrated the World Art Day at MMC complex in which around 10 artists from the district participated at a live painting and art exhibition.
The event was organised by Neu! Naga Foundation for the Arts and powered by TaFMA.
