Chennai, August 24, 2010: Global Art kids have done it again; and this time for a cause. 20 creatives of Global Art India (a unit of SIP Academy India Pvt. Ltd.) children on the theme “Save the Tiger 1411” have been recognized by WWF (World Wildlife Fund for Nature) for their sensitivity towards the cause of saving Tigers. The creatives, which were showcased at the Second Ministerial Conference held at Bali, Indonesia recently, have been endorsed and certified by WWF for its intense depiction of the subject – a rare feat in itself.
This is the first time that creatives by Global Art kids were exhibited at a Ministerial Conference on invitation from WWF. The creatives were exhibited alongside photos taken by children living around the forests in Sumatra where tigers are found. Delegates from all 13 tiger range countries had attended the conference.
Global Art India had organized an awareness campaign for children on the theme “Save the Tiger 1411” in Chennai in February 2010. More than 1,500 children between the age group of 5-15 years participated in the event across all Global Art centres. The 20 top paintings were showcased at the Ministerial conference held in Bali.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Dinesh Victor, Managing Director, SIP Academy India said “It is an important milestone for Global Art as our children’s efforts are recognized at the global level for a noble endeavour. Such recognitions motivate them as also the company. Tigers are one of the most endangered species in the world and are on the verge of extinction. We need to save them and there is a need to create awareness amongst the public especially the younger generation. Such paintings will educate children about the seriousness of the problem as there are only 1411 tigers left in India now. Saving the tiger shall save our fragile eco-system for the generations to come.”
“Through their creatives, the children highlighted the critical issues that have caused the drastic decline of wild tiger population in India. The theme encouraged the children to express their views on this issue in a creative way. Each painting was a message in itself and a plea to the nation to help save the tiger” he added.
Global Art is a unique international art programme for children, which enhances creativity in children using drawing and colouring techniques in a structured and systematic manner. This programme also helps children develop higher levels of observation & concentration, self expression and confidence along with their artistic skills.
The Global Art Programme in India caters to children in the age group of 5-15 years and is designed to provide students with an easy yet effective method to acquire and develop their drawing skills.
