A K Srivastava, Principal of BPS, and art teacher Regint Varghese facilitated all the support required to make the workshop successful, VAFI said.
Through the weekend, VAFI artists kept themselves busy on the canvas, table and easels that were provided for them, using the paint and brushes that they had brought along.
By interacting in art workshops, member artists actually become more effective at both creating and marketing their art than if they were to try doing it on their own, VAFI said.
The President of VAFI, Dr Sreekumar Padmanabhan, spoke a few words about the chief guest, and the Secretary of VAFI, Patric Rozario, also thanked the chief guest in his speech.
As the event drew to a close with the giving away of certificates to all the participating VAFI artists, the paintings they created were gifted to BPS; a notable addition to its treasured art collection.
As a first step, VAFI will organise a three-day painting workshop at the new Birla Public School premises in Qatar from October 27 to 29.
VAFI will also form a Board of Advisory consisting of wellknown artists of international repute from Qatar and India.
VAFI will also include a panel of juries whose primary function would be to professionally evaluate the artists and quality of their works.
