Cultivating Art conducting Telangana State Level Drawing Competition in association with Government of India, Ministry of IT, as part of "Swatch Bharath Abhyan" to nurture and encourage children of all ages and capabilities to engage them in the arts.

Children are a hugely important part of Cultivating Art and we’re passionate about celebrating their talent, enthusiasm, and potential.  We care about the benefits creativity can have for children’s development, well-being and, ultimately, we want to help inspire the next generation of artists and creatives.

We actively engage hundreds of schools around the state and welcome all children and young people from 3-16 years old to engage, look, learn, draw, paint, create, make, and share their creations with us.

Children are often very creative by nature and there are some incredibly talented young artists out there. Anything that encourages and develops this talent is something to be celebrated, and Cultivating Art's competition provides one of the very best opportunities around.

In today's generation kids are more attracted to smart phones, touch screens rather than natural activities like playing, drawing, acting, singing, etc. Even parent's also having no time or resources around to make kids play and learn arts. Cultivating Art wants to provide such opportunities for kids, parents, schools, etc, in association with Government, NGO's, enthusiastic people.

"Telangana State Level Drawing Competition - 2018" is part of Government of India's prestigious social awareness program "Swachh Bharat Abhiyan" to engage children of all ages and capabilities into art and move them away from hazardous mobile phones.

The main objective of this competition is to educate children about nature, connect with nature, learn about cleanliness, keeping premises / house / school / city / state / country - clean, neat, and safe.
