To acquaint the young artists with the contemporary painting styles, art seminars and sale of artworks will also be held.

Some of the international artists who are expected to participate in the five-day long festival include Christopher Griffin from Canada, Lisa Kovvuri from US, David from UK, Daria Raldugina from Russia, Nagendra Paudyal from Nepal, Mohammad Eunus from Bangladesh, Walmir Benhotti and Emanuel Vasco Da Graca from Brazil, Tala from Iran and Nutan Arthur from Hawaii.
