On 16 March, 2016, the ICAT students of Animation department visited the Indian Institute of Cartoonists, the first of its kind organization in India. The organization aims at promoting the art of cartooning in the country by recognizing talents in the field and rewarding them. They showcase and preserve the best artworks for future generations, and guide the budding cartoonists in their career.
The field trip was organized with an aim to give the students an outside-the-classroom learning experience. The students were introduced to the gallery of artworks on women’s rights from international artists. The students got to understand the nuances of the work that gains international recognition. They got an understanding of how different artists have portrayed their thoughts using cartoon as medium.
Chairman of the gallery, Mr. V. G. Narendra explained the students the history of the gallery. He further advised students on how to improve their works and gave them ideas about how they can showcase their works. He also gave the students a free invitation for cartoon workshops and for the upcoming cartoon competitions.
It was a very nice learning experience and good exposure for the students to be able to talk to an eminent person from the same field.
