Khula Aasmaan – a platform for creative expression by children and young adults
What is Khula Aasmaan
“Khula Aasmaan” (meaning Open Sky) is a platform for creative expression by children, young adults and college students. It organises art contests and creates high quality content – video, audio and text, which will be of great value to children, parents as well as teachers.
“Khula Aasmaan” is a registered trademark which is owned by Link Indiaart.com Pvt. Ltd. It is managed, hosted and promoted in the digital world by https://www.indiaart.com, whereas the physical and on the ground activities are managed by Art India Foundation. We have chosen “Khula Aasmaan” as the way to spell this as we believe that it is the phonetically most appropriate way to spell it. It may also be spelt as Khula Asmaan, Khula Asman, Khula Aasman.
Why Khula Aasmaan ?
Few things express a child’s imagination and creativity better than art. Spatial Intelligence is one of the nine fundamental human intelligences. Not enough is done in formal education in India to develop this valuable gift through art.
Essential Skills for 21st century children highlight Cultural Literacy as a Foundational Literacy and Creativity as a Core Competency. Art significantly contributes to and enhances both.
Art is a mirror and a stimulus for change in society. India needs its artists. Children gifted with artistic ability have few places to develop their talent and often drop art in high school for courses that take them to jobs.
The qualities of observation, curiosity, scientific thinking and creativity among children will create young minds who are eager to explore science and solve problems.
We decided to do something about this. We created this wonderful platform for creative expression by children, young adults and college students.
