Darakhshan Campus students – Kashaf Rafi (Class 5) and Aimen Amin (Class 5) – won special prizes at The ArtBeat 2015 Competition. Their art projects on the theme ‘Kaisa Pakistan’ caught the eye of the judges and were selected for the exhibition that was held on 9 to 10 October 2015 in Karachi. The children were excited to have their work displayed by ArtBeat at a public gallery.
ArtBeat is a national child art competition, which was initiated in 2012 with a vision to promote visual culture and understanding of issues among children and youth from their own perspective. With the assistance of the Teachers Resource Centre and the Karachi Arts Council, this year was the first time ArtBeat organised an exhibition in Karachi.
