A Youngster's Guide to Contemporary Art is an art club designed to give children a deeper understanding of contemporary art, both Indian and international. They will be introduced to different types of art mediums such as painting, video art, sculpture and conceptual art. Topics covered will include the role of a gallery, collector, curator and the practice of an artist. This is aimed at giving participants a holistic perspective of contemporary art. Each session will also focus on thematic art concepts such as time and space, memory and identity, and society and politics.

Half of the eight sessions will be visits to art venues across the city. This will include visits to the National Gallery of Modern Art, The Kiran Nadar Museum of Art and contemporary art galleries such as Vadehra Art Gallery. Participants will also have the unique opportunity to visit an artist studio and interact with the artist. The course will conclude at the India Art Fair 2014, which is one of the premier venues for viewing contemporary art in the city. Four sessions will be held in a classroom environment with structured interactive activities in small groups. Each session of the course has been designed to be informative and encourage discussion and debate. The focus is for the children to develop skills of critical thinking and enhance creativity.
