DFCC Bank, through its account scheme for minors, ‘DFCC Junior’, hosted the Junior Art Workshop – an online event to celebrate and nurture the artistic ability and talent of children from across the island. The workshop was conducted ‘free-of-charge’ and was open for children from seven to 18.
The event was hosted online on Independence Day to develop the children’s ability to paint, draw, and color. The workshop focused on artwork related to the central theme of ‘Independence’, aiming to cultivate the key attributes of national pride and unity amongst the many children that attended.
It was conducted via the ZOOM video conferencing platform. It was designed to be as fun-filled and educational as possible, with a wide variety of engaging lessons and sub-activities, curated and conducted by veteran artist T.K. Liyanage.
During the workshop, the children were exposed to a wide range of thematic programs covering key topics such as basic techniques for sketching, coloring, 3D art and design, shadows, and integrating depth within drawings. The special session hosted an audience of over 215 children in total.
