Our endeavor is to celebrate and popularize the significance of World Art Day among people and especially school students through this activity.”

To add to the celebrations of Camel Art Week, there were a number of workshops organized on various subjects including Caricature, Calligraphy, Lino/Wood cut etc. Other than Kokuyo Camlin organizing on-ground activities, they have also taken an initiative to reach out to audiences on social media platforms. One can use the hash tag #ArtWeekChallenge for their posts. The challenge kickstarted on 11th April and saw a tremendous participation by leading artists in India and art communities on Facebook and Instagram. The challenge invites art enthusiasts to put up their work of art every day from the 11th to 14th April and in turn nominate 3 friends to participate as well for a chance to win exclusive Camlin Fine Art hampers worth Rs. 7000/- and a host of other art merchandise as well. Prize winners will be announced on 15th April, World Art Day.

Camel Art Week was first celebrated in Kolkata, the art capital of the country wherein 5 trams were painted with vibrant themes with the active support of schools, art schools, artists and art educators from the City of Joy. In 2015, Kokuyo Camlin got children to paint the world’s longest canvas (7.6 KM of it) in Mumbai. In 2016 Kokuyo Camlin created 70 paintings with the help of professional artists from Mumbai for the benefit of an NGO working with farmer widows of Vidarbha.
