“I have so many favourite Art for Akanksha objects – my stole, the water bottle, a tray table! So it’s hard to pick just one. I have finally narrowed it down to the thing that gets used by all of us and is a part of our memories now – the gorgeous Art for Akanksha bench. It’s a source of acrobatic performances with my kids, a place to keep my chai while I read a book on the sofa, a place for extra butts when we have too many people; and always a conversation piece! It’s totally an object of desire and I am so glad I gave into temptation and bought it when I had no clue where I would keep it at home!”

“Picasso wanted to do something different. So he came up with Cubism. Cubism was totally different from what the artists before Picasso had ever painted.” Says Rohit.
This installation has been all about having fun while learning about Cubism and specifically the life and works of Pablo Picasso.
The disjointed elements of this piece of art were a riot to put together! And it was a great opener for discussions around ‘What is art?’ Who decides what is good art?
We don’t have the answers but as a group, the students got thinking about them.
This is a labour of love by the children of Shindewadi Mumbai Public School
