Christmas - a festival of joy and peace

Christmas is here. Time to rejoice and celebrate. A festival that brings in cheer and lights up the winter season chill. Thoughts of the yummy Christmas pudding, delicious Christmasy cakes, candies and all those goodies fill up my imagination. A sudden whiff of those mouth watering aromas urge me place my orders for them at the well known bakeries and delicatessen in the city!

At school we enacted plays, took part in the school choir and Christmas carnivals, totally awesome memories...days filled with fun and frolic. The best part was also the gifts we collected! All throughout childhood days and later, it is a festival so close to our heart.

Coming back to my children at our art studio and their Christmas artworks. We have been planning to make Christmas decorations and decorate the tree in our community garden, maybe will help in their school activities and at home. After thinking up a lot of ideas and the humongous MESS.... we can up with these nice, crazy, decent, pretty, good, EXCELLENT works of art!! Wishing all of you a Merry Christamas and Happy New Year!

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!
