    The Kangra Arts Promotion Society (KAPS), an NGO at Dharamshala,
    Himachal Pradesh is working for the promotion of Kangra miniature
    paintings which is on the verge of extinction today. The objectives of
    KAPS are preservation of the arts of Kangra, encouragement of existing
    artists, starting a school to teach the arts of Kangra and building a
    treasure of old and new paintings. In addition to running a school to
    train the youth of Himachal Pradesh in this art, KAPS also runs
    workshops where genuine Kangra Paintings are made on traditional hand
    made paper using only mineral and vegetable colours.

    In continuation to its efforts for promotion of art, KAPS in
    association with Voice of Himachal, is organising a 3 day arts
    appreciation course from June 23rd till 26th. Participants will get an
    opportunity to meet and interact with the famous Kangra master artist
    Mr. Vijay Sharma who is a distinguished art critic and has written the
    first-ever Hindi book tracing the history, expansion and other aspects
    of Kangra paintings, titled ‘Kangra Ki Chitrankan Parampara’. He
    received the National Award in 1990.

    The master artists Mr. Dhani Ram and Mr. Mukesh Kumar will conduct the
    workshop and take participants through the intricacies of Kangra
    paintings. Mr Dhani Ram trains the students at the Chitera School of
    Art, conducting classes at the Kangra Art Museum while Mr Mukesh
    conducts his advanced classes at the Chamunda Devi temple.

    Dr Gautam Vyathit, a renowned authority on folk arts and culture and
    Mr B.K. Agarwal, the Principal Resident Commissioner of the State of
    Himachal Pradesh in Delhi will also share their experiences and
    thoughts on this miniature art form.

    The course is being organised in a beautifully located campus, 6 kms
    from Dharamshala town. The campus offers all modern amenities to the
    participants including a training hall, cottages and a well equipped
    dinning hall. The course will be structured in a manner that
    participants will get ample opportunity to learn the art as well as
    visit places of interest in and around Dharamshala. Spread over 3 days
    the course will come as a welcome respite to people looking forward to
    an escape from the heat during this great Indian summer.
