CHENNAI: Global Art India organised Kolor Champ 2014 in collaboration with SIP Academy here on Sunday at Chennai Trade Centre, Nandambakkam. More than 1,300 children in the age group of 5 to 15 years from all over India participated in the event.
Dinesh Victor, MD, SIP Academy India said that the Global Art programme was currently being conducted at 600 centres in 15 countries and had successfully trained over 2,50,000 children since its inception in Malaysia in 1999.
“The competition is held every year to bring to the fore creative talent in children. We are happy to see the children who gathered here to participate and request parents to encourage them in art,” he said.
Victor said, “Today’s competitive scenario requires innovative thinking and creative art programmes. Besides being a great stress buster, art also helps in self expression. We believe that all our students will use their creativity in their future career as well.”
