The inclusion of varied media during the camp encompasses interesting activities which will initiate and influence deep involvement of the participants. The integrated art exercises included in the workshop are designed to enhance and accelerate/encourage the participants to look, interpret, draw, colour, write and perform. Four weeks of the camp will be dedicated to four artists,Thota Vaikuntam, MF
