Get Set Go And Create at Dwarka City Painting Competition


Dwarka City Painting Competition is unique as there is No Participating Fees and the registration is done on the spot.  The creativity of children is paramount for the organisers and this year all the  participating children will be given Gift to mark the Republic Day.  

Drawing and Painting competitions are an excellent platform for young minds to showcase their artistic skills, express their creativity and imagination, and develop essential life skills. Such competitions not only provide an opportunity for children to exhibit their artwork but also help them gain valuable experience, recognition, and appreciation for their efforts. With this motive Dwarka City has been organising painting competitions since the last 16 years on Republic Day. Today, on the occasion of Republic day, a painting competition will be held. The competition will be held today on Republic Day, 26th January, Friday at Dwarka Sports Complex, Sector-11 at 1.30 pm.

Republic Day is a day to feel proud about our country, our motherland, its rich cultural heritage and its achievements. What would be a better way to express these feelings than through the medium of vivid, bright and bold colours? This competition is thus aimed at rejuvenating the spirit of patriotism and unity amongst children in the sub city and motivating them on the path of holistic education. In Dwarka, Republic Day has, in a way, become synonymous with the Children’s Painting Competition. Being organised by Dwarka City for the past several years, this most awaited and looked-forward-to event is a big draw with children of all ages. It was only during Covid days that the competition was not held. Last year too competition could not be held on Republic day but was held later in April. The competition got an overwhelming response last year and this year too Dwarka City expects the same. It is always a delight to watch budding artists give wings to their flights of fantasies through the medium of colour. There is no restricting these children as they unleash their colourful ideas on paper, big and small. Children with their free, pure and simple thoughts and open mind give this an added shade of celebration. The organiser of the event are Mukesh Sinha and Sudha Sinha, Mg Editors of Dwarka City newspaper. This is a day when children’s imagination knows no barriers, no boundaries and they are free to splash colour and give wings to their flights of fancy. Says Mukesh Sinha, Mg. Editor, “Painting competitions encourage children to think outside the box, explore their creative potential, and come up with unique ideas and concepts. When children participate in such competitions, they are exposed to a diverse range of themes, topics, and challenges that challenge their imagination and creativity.”

The competition is open to all children of age groups 3 to 14 years. As in the past years, there will be three categories including 3-6 years, 7-10 years and 11-15 years. There will be one special category also. The topics will be announced on the spot. The topics for the different categories will be given at the venue. Drawing sheets will be provided by organizers but children are requested to bring painting material with them. Children can let their ideas flow through the medium that can be crayons, pencil colours, poster colours or Sketch pens. The winners will be judged and announced by a panel of reputed and well-known artists.

For the participants, Dwarka City Painting Competition promises to be a great event. While there are prizes galore for those taking part as well, there is a virtual bonanza for the winners in the different groups.

I strongly feel the necessity of empowering our students with certain skill sets which can help them in the due course of their lives. I find that development of skills is a critical component of a student's journey toward personal and professional success. We as academicians must work towards creating an ecosystem where academics and skills must coexist for the battle of the fittest to occur. I am a strong advocate of a schooling system that combines experiential and skill-based learning as it improves children’s creativity in the long run of time. When a student learns applying, and developing abilities acquired through experience, this type of learning retains with him for a lifetime as its not acquired through rot learning but experiencing. It becomes the onus of an educational institution to plan curriculum by understanding the learning system of a student. This strategy encourages pupils to think out of the box, evaluate their observation, and real time application of what they have learned. Providing life skills-based education at a young age helps students prepare for the real world. Skill development in school education is a crucial aspect of preparing students for success in both their academic and professional lives. It goes beyond traditional academic subjects and focuses on imparting practical skills that are essential for personal growth and future employment. Here at Central Academy International School, Sector 10, we encourage students to acquire skills through club activities which include a wide range of subjects like horticulture club, cooking club, entrepreneurship club that teaches them about developing self-employment skills. Ample focus is given on development of oratory skills and personality development. Mental health and in house counseling is the key feature that associates with overall and wholesome development of the students.
