Grade 6 students participated in Kalamkari painting on 28 June 2019. Kalamkari literally means, Kalam - pen and kari - work, i.e., art work done using a pen. The art of painting using organic dyes on cloth was popular in several parts of India, but this style of Kalamkari flourished at SriKalahasti and Masulipatnam. The Kalamkari tradition chiefly consists of scenes from Hindu mythology. Figures of deities with rich border embellishments were created for the temples.
