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. The making of the Colosseum model using cardboard and paints.



Durga Puja and Dussehra

Happy Durga Puja and Dussehra to all!
For all our readers who love madhubani art, here is our Goddess Durga in madhubani style of painting.

As the children delve into the interesting Dussehra and Durga Puja activities, here are some of the activities we enjoyed doing during the festive break.
Easy drawing and coloring/ painting Goddess Durga and Ravana. Making a shield and sword using cardboard.Making bow and arrows using cardboard and paper.Learning to make Rangolis. It was pretty easy to draw 'Ravana' with his ten heads. We first made a large 'U' added ears to it and continued till we counted ten heads. Adding the crown and the details on the face completes the heads. Then make the body and the flames and it is time for some colouring.
Now for some artworks created by 5 to 9 year olds during this session.

Have fun this festive season and enjoy creating!
