Every year, following the Inaugural of her show for Children with Cancer, Sanjukta conducts an Art Therapy workshop for the children, where they paint/ colour on the given theme. This helps them to relax and forget their pain. It is like a fun day out for these Children.

On 20th Dec, Twenty one children attended this Art therapy workshop, Theme given was Christmas. And they painted Santa Claus, very happily with the colours representing Santa. There were gifts and tree to be painted too.

The children coloured with great gusto and said they loved and enjoyed Art. The children were given certificates at the end of the workshop, by our Chiefguest Shri Sandip Soparrkar ji ( Celebrity Bollywood & Hollywood Choreographer), Mrs Alka Sapru Bisen ( CEO Cancer Patients Aid Association) felicitated Shri Sandip ji. He was very happy to join the session and mingled very well with the children.
This was followed by Santa giving them sweets & and we, the organisers gave gifts and snack boxes.

The children enjoyed the entire activity and workshop. And were extremely joyful and left the gallery very happily.
Thus a successful Art therapy session.

We are thankful to Mrs Nina Rege, Assistant Director, Nehru Centre Gallery for her kind support for this cause and permitting the children to paint in the gallery.

“The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.” —Joseph Campbell, literary critic.

“Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair”

Nature plays a significant role in healthy living and the existence of life on planet earth. A home for different living beings and we all are dependent on the environment for food, air, water, and other relative needs. Therefore, it is critical for every individual to save and protect our environment and have healthy breathing space.
Creating awareness about our environment is of extreme importance because it can help to minimise the damage caused due to destruction caused by industrialisation, pollution and modernisation leading to Global warming, climatic changes, etc.
It can also lead to a more sustainable world by promoting the use of renewable energy resources like wind, water and solar energy rather than use of coal, oil etc which wont last forever and a very polluting to the environment.

Human beings are cutting down trees and plants in unthinkable numbers, subjecting it to destruction and playing with the natural resources, due to which the environment is being harmed tremendously. Not only this, due to some manmade reasons, the atmosphere, is showing signs of depletion, which is very dangerous for human health.
Therefore, understanding the importance of environment, and its safelty is of utmost importance.

In my Art exhibition, titled,

Being held at the
Worli, Mumbai
From 19th Dec 2023 to 25th Dec 2023

I have tried to emphasise the beauty and importance of Nature and the tearing need to attend to the wake up call, to save mother earth. The need to grow more trees and in turn promote healthy living.

The many paintings in different hues focus on the beauty of the many beautiful seasons we witness due to existance of Nature.

This Exhibition of paintings throws light on the crying need to focus on the Environment, through the focus on the beauty of Nature and if we do not wake up to this cause, we will soon loose it. And it would just be a memory.

How the destruction of Nature is indirectly related to rise in deadly diseases such as Cancer and other life threatening illnesses leading to millions perishing.
Through this Art Exhibition, the artist hopes to create awareness amongst the viewers. And raise funds for the treatment of children battling Cancer.
