अभिमान वाटतो की चित्रकार आपट्यांची तिसरी पिढी कार्यरत आहे. आजोबांनी लावलेल्या रोपट्याचे कल्पवृक्षात रूपांतर झालं आहे हे बघतांना खूपच आनंद वाटतो. याच कल्पवृक्षाचे लवकरच वटवृक्ष झालेले बघायला नक्की आवडेल.
Chitrakalpa Art Institute is exhibiting the artwork of its students and Milind sir at P N Gadgil and Sons Art Gallery, Aundh from 8 Jul 2016 till 17th July 2016. We bring you some of their awesome creations on display at the gallery.
When asked about what is in store for the future, Milind sir says, “Art Institute चे रूपांतर Art College मध्ये करण्याचा मानस आहे. तसेच पुण्याबाहेर शाखा काढण्याचा मानस आहे.”
He sums it up with these words – “प्रत्येकामध्ये कला असतेच फक्त ती जोपासण्याची इच्छा पाहिजे.“
