Educational & Cultural Activities
One of the main objectives of the NGMA is to enable people to look at works of contemporary art with understanding and sensitivity. In order to educate the public in art appreciation, films are screened in the NGMA auditorium twice daily. More than 500 film shows were conducted during the year for the general public and students and teachers from around 60 schools in and around Delhi.

An Art Sketch Club for students was organised every Sunday in the Gallery. A summer painting workshop for students, classified into 3 age groups was organised in the NGMA in the month of June 2008, in which 180 students participated and were awarded certificates. 108 conducted tours of school groups were organised, and a total number of 7904 students of various age groups visited the gallery during the year. Lectures and seminars on art and art practices were also organised in the gallery at regular intervals, including visits by foreign dignitaries, members of Friends of Museum Society, Foreign ministers, and organisations interested in Contemporary Indian Art.

The Educational responsibilities of the National Gallery of Modern Art are the foremost. It is fully taken into consideration that the success of this institution would depend on how well it could educate the general public and cater to the needs of professionals and specialists. Therefore, the programme essentially consists of following

  • Organized visits of school children
  • Popular conducted tours and other programmes for the education of general public
  • General service to artists by providing documentation facilities and educational exhibitions
  • Specialized lectures, seminars and research for professionals and specialists; and
  • Practical guidance through Art Sketch Club for all age-groups.

This education programme has the specific responsibility of dealing directly with individuals to develop their creative abilities and powers of appreciation.

Elementary and specialized lectures on art appreciation, criticism and history are also given, supplemented with showing of films on various international art trends. In order to orient the public towards the basic understanding of the interrelations of visual and performing arts, programmes of film shows and tape-recorded music are also arranged.
