Drawing and painting are kind of tools for brain and mind development

There is certainly a positive change in a child's nature as he or she learns through art activities. His or her understanding of concepts gradually improve, of course the time taken can vary from child to child. There is also a distinct change in the behavioral patterns and I have experienced it! The level of concentration improves to a great extent in some cases. Speed, attention span, memory, problem solving and understanding these are not only terms associated with math or science skills, but with art and drawing as well.

I have come across very interesting reading on this topic on various websites that are truly inspiring!

LAST MINUTE SCHOOL PROJECT : Making a model of the Colosseum using cardboard.

Children often come in with last minute projects to complete. Here is one such example.We printed a few pictures of the Colosseum for guidance.Corrugated cardboard or cardboard box were used for the base and the main building. The cardboard cutout of a carton was easy to roll and secure, so it is better to choose a slightly softer version of cardboard. Paper tape was good to secure the shape and later painted so it doesn't show that much. Being a school project I prefer to use paints the student is more familiar with due to the time constraint so we used poster paints. For the base we covered a rectangular piece of cardboard with a green sheet of crepe paper.

I must say that it turned out impressive for a quick project! The best part was when Manya carried it home with a big smile!


Children have been exploring 'Madhubani' painting and drawing techniques during the September and October sessions and have come up with some excellent artworks. Here are a few of them and more in the making....

Enjoy creating them and share with us!
