The programmes of "Children's Art" initiated by Indiaart and "Art to Schools" initiated by Art India Foundation aims at creating awareness and appreciation of art and aesthetics among children.Other objectives of these programmes are to stimulate creative thinking, build an urge to go beyond the obvious and start thinking out of the box. This is being done by arranging interaction of artists with children in a format that consists of demonstration of the art form as well as a dialogue with the students. Apart from this, a separate section for "Children's Art" has been set up on Indiaart.com and a dedicated web page is created for each shortlisted child to showcase the ongoing work. This will act as a huge encouragement to the children who will strive to create great works of art to show to the world.
