Bengaluru November 12, 2016: It was a day to fly with Colours at Christ Color Festival with over 7,000 people across three generations – old, young and children, men and women, including students, teachers and parents, and from age 3 to 90 years – took part in the Fest, for the first time in school history, to mark Children’s Day in a truly special way. The Christ School CBSE campus was awash in a riot of colours trying their hand at giving shape to their emotions and creativity.

The Festival was Inaugurated by Rock Star Rohit, RJ & Actor, along with Shri. Sridhar Comaravalli, Cartoonist, Rev. Fr. Augustine Paimpallil CMI , Principal, Christ School, Rev. Fr. Mathew Thadathil, Vice Principle and Kishore Joseph , Director, Breathe Entertainment.

A concept of Breathe Entertainment, and hosted by Christ School, the Festival offered the participants a vibrant and kaleidoscopic experience of a cultural potpourri across many media and formats like Performing arts, Fine and traditional arts, Culinary arts, visual and digital art, art installations, interactive art and contemporary art.

Curious crowds thronged the over 50 stalls, with the main attraction of the day being the special children  participating in full enthusiasm that struck a ready chord with the people.

There were famous artists too, such as Drums Circle by Drums Event India, Magic Show Flash Mob, Yoga sessions Calligraphy worksho, Dance workshop by Genesis School of Dance and exclusive Entertainment arena by Snow City.

Kishore Joseph, Director, Breathe Entertainment, and the brain behind the event, said choosing Children’s Day for the event is our way of attempting to bring people together”  and to bring out the child in everyone. “The focus was on creativity and the right mix of colors, and it feels really great to motivate kids by organizing such events,” he said.

Earlier too, Kishore was instrumental in organizing several such unique events such as Colorothon, Coonoor Hill Walker, T- 20 World Cup for the Blind held n 2012, Walkathons , Peace Festival & Peace by Cycle, to highlight social causes.

Color Festival was hosted by Christ School, State Syllabus, because, said Fr. Augustine Paimpallil CMI , Principal, Christ School, it’s a unique event which brings together people belonging to three generations, students, parents & teachers  under a single platform to express themselves through art and painting.

“We have blown the myth that art is avant-garde, and that it is the province of the elite. Creativity flows from imagination and both flow from the power of your mind, your thinking, and not the power of your purse, your bottom line, your lineage, caste, religion or whatever. This is what we aim to stress and propagate through Color Festival,” said Fr. Augustine.

Incidentally, Christ School are eyeing an entry into the Limca Book of Records and the Guinness Book of World Records for organizing the largest painting extravaganza in the world in the school sector.

According to the organizers, 500 best paintings of the participants judged by renowned artists, will be auctioned and donated to Charity Partner Christ Special School.

Best 18 Winners  from 6 different categories of Christ School Color Festival were felicitated by Fr. Augustine.
