Lending a Home to Art!

No Comments 757 Views1

 

To help us in our endeavour to spread the message of art and its immense possibilities in impacting the lives of our children, Art for Akanksha supporters decided to come together by…lending us their homes!

They decided that a simple way to raise money for art education was to bring their family and friends into their homes and to overwhelm them by a crazy riot of colours in the form of our products designed to be bursting with energy and vibrancy.

It’s a simple yet powerful concept. The Art for Akanksha Home Bazaars.

Over the years, we’ve had many of our ardent supporters lend their homes to us for a day – to turn their living rooms into a bazaar space, but one which is more intimate and personal. It becomes a space to understand what art can do for children and how they in turn can support it – through sales, donations, teaching and volunteering.

As we launch a new collection of designs and products for the festive season, the Home Bazaars become an incredible tool for us to meet new people, and open up opportunities in many new directions.

Here’s a little peak into our gracious hosts Indu and Shameek Bhargava’s home. We were overwhelmed by their love and wonderful response from their friends and family.

If you’ve missed the excitement here, you can catch us again at Riyana and Ishani’s home tomorrow, September 23rd, from 11am to 7pm, at 1101 Callalily, Z Wing, Nahar Amrit Shakti Chandivali, Powai. Bring your friends along to witness the magic of art and children. Do help us spread the word!

Alumni Feature: “The dot helped me realise my potential”

No Comments 711 Views1

Hi. I am Sana. I am an Akanksha alumnus. I joined design class when everything was going wrong for me and I had really low self esteem. But the more classes I attended the more I learnt about myself. I learnt that I should never laugh at anyone or pull them down. I learnt that I should always encourage people and help them grow in confidence.

In art class I came up with my own unique style of using dots. It was a phase where I only used dots and I would get completely engrossed in them. The dot was a mirror that helped me realise my potential. I’ve tried to bring it back again! Hope you like it.

 

Watch out for the ‘Art for Akanksha Retrospective Collection’ which brings back some of the art, products as well as students that go back almost 25 years and brings it back to the present.  It is about ideas, motifs and themes that keep the essence of its Akanksha creators but with a more modern feel.

 

Alumni Feature: “Art class taught me to believe in myself”

“Hi. I am Naval. I am an Akanksha alumnus. Art class taught me to believe in myself and never give up in any situation. I started my journey here as a student and today I teach art to all my students. Whatever I’ve learned so far through art, I’d like to give back to all my kids.

The fish motif used to be a predominant feature in all my art work as a child. I’ve tried to bring it back in a new avatar. Hope you like it.”

“Art, according to me, should be appreciated. And what better way to appreciate art than through your early morning cup of coffee every day?”

“My Akanksha coffee mug, containing a beautiful picture of Vincent Van Gogh’s most famous painting, the Starry Night, is definitely my most favorite Akanksha product. Everyone who sees it always end up asking me where I purchased it from, because it’s definitely the most gorgeous coffee mug they’ve ever come across. Another plus point to this product is that it’s a perfect size, giving me just the amount of coffee I need to get through my days!”

It starts with one person – you.

Pull a card out each day.  Push yourself to connect with someone different, to do something difficult, to reach out and care.  Experience the joy of being human. Be the Change.
