Artists have always found inspiration in unpredictable sources: art, life, history—there are no boundaries. In this spirit, our young artists were made to exlore the relationship between inspiration and creation. Folk art is a favourite source of inspiration with artists. Students were taught about madhubani, gond and warli folk arts practiced in India. Students took inspiration and developed their own style of painting which were promoted by Empowerment.

It also got associated with poet Ms. Preeta Chandran and artist Pankaj Kumar Saxena for their book launch:

The Painted Verse, as the name suggests, is an amalgamation of poetry and painting, two different, yet complementary arts which has been published by Bibliophile South Asia. The poet and the painter weave a rich fabric of colours and words, inspired by nature and its beauty, love, pain, joy and the innermost feelings of humankind. The poems have a universal appeal and are an enchanting blend of rhyme and meter as well as free verse that characterizes modern poetry. The mixed media artwork in the Painted Verse combines various traditionally distinct visual art and together the poems and the paintings form a perfect fusion.
