This event saw a humongous enthusiasm and met stiff competition. It is a great way to encourage the freedom of art in young talents. We at CFBP believe that true consumer artists paint their own selves. Hence, we promote art without any boundaries by letting these children explore their inner selves, encouraging their own language of art. Over the years we have introduced our young artists to various art techniques like pen and ink, charcoals and many more at National Sports Club of India. We have also arranged activities at Mumbai Fest, Rotary Fest this year for them to explore their immense imagination.”


All entries were evaluated by a panel of judges from the Sir J. J. School art fraternity and were rated on the basis of creativity and originality of the artwork. The jury selected a total of 31 winners in 6 categories from Mumbai. CFBP-NHAF then announced the winners at the art competition.
