Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD)
is going to arrange a group painting exhibition titled ‘Diversity of the Nature’ by the students of  ‘Painting for Children,’ coordinated by Mohammad Habib Ullah in its Galerie Zoom in the city’s Dhanmondi area.
The inaugural ceremony of the
exhibition will be held on  September 15. Eminent artist Samarjit Roy Chowdhury will  grace the occasion
as the chief guest.
Visual art can be regarded as one of the ultimate reflections of the human mind. And the minds of children,
unfettered by the laws of adults, can generate amazing and unsurreptitious views of the world around us.
To display the beauty of the endless thoughts and imagination of the
children and to inspire them in
creating more art, Painting for Children Workshop at (AFD) is going
to organise its first painting exhibition by its students.
Made by 55 little painters - who learned their foundations of painting
at the Painting for Children Workshop at various branches of AFD - two kinds of artworks: paintings of nature on canvas and folk paintings
on clay 'shora' (domed lid) will be presented in this exhibition.
The exhibition will be open to all until September 29 from Monday
to Thursday from 3:00pm to 9:00pm, Friday and Saturday (9:00am to12:00 noon and 5:00pm to 8:00pm).
Sunday is closed.  n
