November 26, 2019 02:06 PM

CHANDIGARH:On the recommendations of the Committee constituted by Prof. Raj Kumar, Vice
Chancellor under the Chairmanship of Prof. Harsh Nayyar, Department of Botany to assist
Horticulture Division for making graffiti at the Student Centre pond. The necessary
help by the Deptt. of Arts History & Visual Arts, PU was provided and a graffiti
workshop was organised in collaboration with Horticulture Division on 23-24 November,
The Horticulture Division provided the material for the workshop and prepared
the background for conducting the workshop by cleaning the area including the minor
repairs of the pond and removing the wild growth. The walls of the pond were filled
with the required material by the Horticulture Division for making the surface smooth
so that the graffiti should look impressive. All the material as requested by the
Deptt. of Arts History & Visual Arts like paints, brushes, papers, stainers of
different colours, spray paints etc. were supplied by the Horticulture Division.
About 25 participants (students) displayed their skills in the workshop. They
were served lunch and refreshments by the Horticulture Division. Their paintings
depicted the message of cleanliness in the Campus through cartoon and other means. Due
care was taken that the graffiti should focus on the theme of cleanliness and banning
the use of plastic in the Campus. Due care was also taken that the banned items of
single use plastic like disposable plates, cups etc. were not used during the workshop.
