While the Kochi-Muziris Biennale continues to make waves, frequented alike by the glitterati and the commoner, on the cards is an all-Kerala Children’s Biennale.

The organisers of Biennale have hit upon the unique idea of displaying children’s works that are adjudged the best at a forthcoming art contest. The preliminary round of the art contest for students between Class I and Class VII would be held at Aspinwall House at 11 a.m. on January 19.

“The time for painting will be two hours and world-renowned painters will be the judges. The fee for enrolling will be Rs.150,” they said.

According to a biennale spokesperson, participating children could work on any theme or medium, but the Kochi Biennale Foundation would only provide paper and clipboards. Further, they would be entitled to visit the biennale free of cost with their guardian.

More information on this can be had on the phone 9562905563.

The biennale on Monday saw visit by A.C. Jose, former Speaker of the Kerala Assembly.

Over the last two days, film director Jayaraj and actor Padmapriya visited the show. While the director took an instant liking for the sound installation of Sanchayan Ghosh, who teaches at Santiniketan, the actor wanted to revisit the show to appreciate the exhibits in-depth.
