IDO - International Drawing Olympiad

Exams for the International Drawing Olympiad (IDO) are held once a year at the national level in individual schools. Apart from academic achievement, students should concentrate on soft skills such as drawing, painting, sketching, etc. Many students in India possess remarkable drawing abilities. To nurture youthful talent, schools involve kids in such activities during their free time.

Teachers are better able to recognise students interested in art. Teachers can detect pupils’ imagination through activities undertaken in the classroom. The competition is accessible to students in grades 1 to 10. The goal of such a test is to improve and sharpen their inventiveness. Students can contact their art teachers at their individual schools to register for the International Drawing Olympiad (IDO) exams. This article will discuss the IDO exam 2022-23 in detail.

The International Drawing Olympiad (IDO) exam syllabus is divided into age groups and classes. This exam is given to students in grades 1 to 10, and the syllabus varies by class. Students are judged on their ability to draw and express their originality, theme, colour scheme, topic selection, the message communicated, attractiveness, and other factors.
