When the world grapples with insidious virus, the psychological scars it can inflict on people, especially on children, because of the social distancing measures and disruption of normalcy it brings in its wake, could be gruesome. To keep the students engaged during these difficult times and to reduce their anxiety FAIPS (DPS) organized an online Art Competition for the students of Grades 1 to 12 on the theme ‘United against CORONA - Express through Art’. The competition provided a platform to the students to express their emotions, feelings, ideas and innovative thoughts on COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing, quarantine and the fight against the virus through the medium of Art and showcase their versatile artistic talents.
