A special publication of a calendar for year 2000 was composed with drawings and paintings of all the students at CAAC in 1999. A book “Art Education” by Nalini Weerasinghe was launched at the show.

Exhibition and Sale of Work – 2008
This was organized by past teachers and students to help boost the finances of the present CAAC which was a need at the time. This exhibition was presented at the 706 Gallery, Barefoot by the kind contribution of Dominic and Nazreen Sansoni. The art work of Richard Gabriel, Laki Senanayake, Druvinka Madawala and Neville Weeraratne were contributed by them and made an overwhelming sum which greatly helped our ailing finances. As we thank them, we also thank all the others who contributed with the art work they displayed. We appreciate all those who gave us cash contributions from both abroad and Sri Lanka. This was indeed a great effort by all our past
students, teachers and well wishers.
