Colourful faces provide food for thought


Face Painting Competition organized at St. Xavier’s Colleges

Patna. An inter-department Face painting competition was organised on Tuesday jointly by St. Xavier’s College and St. Xavier’s College of Management and Technology. The competition was based on the college annual theme “Healthy Youth, Wealthy Nation”. Colourful faces which were beyond recognition were a delight for the students and teachers alike. One could hear peals of laughter even though the message that the student teams tried to give were serious in nature.

21 groups from all the departments participated in the competition and showed their creativity using the face as their canvas. Each group had three participants. They used fabric, poster, water and organic colors to paint the faces. The students showed the current issues of health like habit of eating junk food, smoking apart from yoga postures in their face paintings.
