Watch a dance drama, attend a painters' workshop and check out tropical fishes over the weekend
Art with a Heart
The second Magma Painters' Workshop will be held over two days and is an initiative to promote arts and upcoming talent. Speaking about the intiative, Kaushik Sinha, Vice President, Communications and Administration, Magma Fincorp Limited, said, "We let artists interact and mingle with others and share their thoughts as they paint.
We also provide scholarships to those who are willing to take it up professionally but don't have the finances to do so." The workshop will provide raw materials such as canvases, brushes and paints, which will be available even after the duration of the workshop. The initiative which was initially conducted only in Kolkata is now touring across six cities, and is providing a platform for artists to follow their dreams.

Stories in a dance

Finally, with this performance we are getting a chance to do that. Foreign performances give you a high but Indian performances give us a sense of pride. The idea behind this performance is that with the right talent and education any Indian girl can go and make her mark abroad," she said.
