Artists, students decorating walls of government schools

Artists and students of art schools have a task – to do up the compound walls of government institutions with attractive paintings on Mysuru Dasara, folk art and much more in the Core Heritage Area (CHA) here.

Students from Chamarajendra Academy of Visual Arts (CAVA), Sri Kalaniketana School of Arts, Ravi Varma School of Arts and Vyjayanthi School of Arts have been roped in by the Mysuru City Corporation to beautify the compound walls with attractive paintings that enliven the streets ahead of Dasara.

The compound walls of only the government departments and institutions are being painted by the young artists, who are using water paints to give a facelift to walls that are covered with unwanted posters and other publicity material.

Santosh, an artist from Sri Kalanikenatan School of Arts, told The Hindu that his team of artists has been working on the walls for ten days now. “Like us, students and artists from other schools have been allotted walls by the MCC and are also painting them for over a week now,” he said.

The artists said the compound walls near the palace, J.K. Ground, and Dasara exhibition ground are getting a makeover
