The point of the summer festival was to allow the children to participate in different art assignments outside/during school hours to be on display for an art exhibition. A segment of the festival was wall painting where the children were allowed to paint the walls of their classroom to bring color to the class and to give a personal contribution to the aura of the classroom. Parents were invited and were intrigued by the work of their own. The students were given a free day to draw and paint during the festival as sort of a relaxing period before their exams. This festival meant a lot to me because I am not able to have full conversations with the students and art projects are the best way for me to communicate with the students. I had a lot of fun and hopefully there will be another summer festival next year at Parijat Academy.
