Fig: Some of the participants with Mr. JN Bhandari

Literature on prosperity of arts dates back to 15th century. The world recognises arts of Rembrandt, the Dutch painter as one of the most skilful in history of arts. The art, “The Scream” of 1893 rocked the world stage on glory of art and expression.

Experts don’t disagree that arts forms alternate modality of expression. Fran Smith asserts that art is associated with gains in mathematic skills through visio-spatial orientation. It excels cognitive ability, enhances critical thinking and  boosts up non-verbal skills and abstract reading ability. They claim arts leading to enhancement of intrinsic motivation, in career progression, expression in virtual world and in thematic perspectives. With these evidences, the Punya Foundation is privileged to publicise its arts project, currently provided to children born to refugee parents.
