The 4th edition of the One Page Spotlight – Doodle Festival 2019 was held at Shiv Nadar School, Noida over November 23rd and 24th, 2019. The Doodle festival that travels to schools across the country aims to create a positive environment for students to explore their interests and display their creativity.
The Festival was helmed by Ajit Narayan, Cartoonist and Doodling Artist who brought together various Industry Artists to conduct workshops for the students. Students from across Delhi NCR participated in the festival and their parents too were given an opportunity to be part of it.
Artists conducting the workshops included Vandana Bist (Doodling), Priya Sabhlok (Zentangle), Shipra Dutta (Calligraphy), Usha Chhabra & Amita Khare (Visual Storytelling) , Uday Shankar (Cartooning), Salil Shail (Animation), Suvidha Mistry & Saurabh Pandey (Illustrations) and Sankha Samanta (Designing).
The highlight of the fest was the inaugural function with Nadaswaram performance by a team from Kochi followed by the Chief Guest Mr. Sajjive Balakrishnan calling out students from the audience and drawing their caricature in less than 60 seconds.
One Page Spotlight, who was the joint partner of the Doodle Festival provided students the much needed platform to upload and save their works online. Artworks from various workshops and competitions are usually forgotten as students progress from one class to the other. With One Page Spotlight, the Art-works of students can remain in their profiles managed by the parents, thereby creating an array of content as the students progress from one class to the other. One Page Spotlight thus helps students in building their professional portfolio, connect with fellow artists, and find mentors, said a representative of One Page Spotlight at the inaugural function.
Principal, Shiv Nadar School, Shashi Banerjee praised One Page Spotlight claiming that it is a wonderful initiative to support students with a platform to record their work and maintain their portfolio. He also encouraged the career guidance cell to work with the students and the platform.
One Page Spotlight has an active community of creative doodlers and illustrators that are constantly innovating and help aspiring artists learn this craft. To be a part of this community, you can follow the community here.
