‘The Gifting Tree’ brings together the work of Sonia Chitrakar, Archana Kumari and Kamta Tahed, three contemporary Indian artists who use bright colours, pattern and storytelling in different ways.

Each artist has created a painting or drawing that references the importance of trees in supporting life. ‘The Gifting Tree’ refers to a divine, life-giving tree otherwise known as Kalpavriksha, which appears in many religions and stories throughout India.

Children can reflect on their own experiences of trees through two hands-on activities. Taking inspiration from the artists’ work, children are invited to draw a picture about the importance of planting trees and add their response to a cumulative display in the exhibition space. Children can also make a drawing of a problem-solving fantasy tree.
