“Your art is what you do when no one can tell you exactly how to do it.
Your art is the act of taking personal responsibility,
challenging the status quo,
and changing people.”
Welcome to Kala Sanyojan 2016
A UNIQUE ART FEST BY MANAV RACHNA INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL
‘Kala Sanyojan’- a Unique Art Fest at Manav Rachna International School , Gurgaon Sector 46, envisions ecstasy of creation in all its possible as well as fantasized aspects. The mega event which primarily aims to celebrate art in different forms was first held in December, 2012. It is a platform for the youngsters, where they can express what is embedded in their creative minds.
It is believed ‘One eye sees, the other feels’, which means the purest form of human expression probably is art and the artist’s creation. The composition, the vision, use of shades, colours, mood, presentation of thoughts- all give away what we may try to cover up with our words and actions in our day to day life. The artist’s panorama is and will always be soulful, true, pure and mesmerizing.
With this very thought , we at MRIS-46,aim to celebrate art in its various forms , to allow the budding artists from different cultures, backgrounds and practices, to work together and challenge each other. We see this as an essential tool that can inspire and give wings to young children to a wide spectrum of expressions, moods and thoughts.
Kala Sanyojan-2016, will give an opportunity to the children to explore their personal meaning of art through various mediums. This year we commence our event from 15th September , 2016, which will culminate with an exhibition. During this unique fest, students will give expression to their creativity under the guidance and help of qualified teachers , renowned and seasoned artists from different parts of India . This Mega Event will comprise of multiple art forms- painting, Installation, Pottery, Sculpture, Sketching, Craft/Paper Work out of waste material, Glass Painting , Jewellery designing, Wash Technique, Graphic Designing, Assemblage, Anatomy of Dots etc.
It is our endeavor to bring out the hidden talent in each child and put forward in an art form. Its significance as a forum for new ideas and an indicator of future trends in the arts cannot be underestimated.
Participating students along with their parents are also invited for an exhibition of the products made in Kala Sanyojan on 2nd , 3rd , and 4th December, 2016.

Ms. Neha Jain, a renowned artist, brought an art form using old magazines, newspapers, plastic bottles, cans, e-waste and even broomsticks to create beautiful and some amazing crafts. Right from waste plastic bottles, spoons to broken bangles, plastic hangers, waste baskets to broken trays and newspapers were all transformed into intricate artefacts. Students from MRIS-21(C), MRIS-14 (Faridabad), Paras World School, DAV sec-14, Gurgaon and Govt. Girls senior school, Badshahpur also took part in these workshops.

They learnt this art form by weaving together many straight strips of paper, in and out, under and over. Exceptional ideas were executed by deft fingers of students. The underlying principle of Kala Sanyojan is to make arts cultivate creative thinking leading to other supplemental skills such as problem-solving which ultimately can benefit students across disciplines.
