Course programme

The Academy has been established in homage to Shankar. He devoted his life to art, which found its climax in the journal SHANKAR'S WEEKLY started in 1948. Side by side, SHANKAR fostered organizations and activities for children such as the Shankar's International Children's Competition in Painting and Writing and Shankar's On-the-Spot Painting Competition. His love for children steadily moved him from brush to pen, and he founded in 1957 the Children's Book Trust (CBT), which brings under it all these activities, including the Indraprastha Press, and Shankar's International Dolls Museum which attracts a large number of children daily. CBT is a pioneering house for publishing children's books. The publications include the monthly journal CHILDREN'S WORLD.
