Summer Workshop 2012 - Exhilarating and creatively refreshing

 Explore. Experiment. Learn new techniques. Create. Enjoy. Have fun. Loving the paint smudges on our faces and hands. Lots of crafts. Lots of painting. Coloring. Sketching. Exchanging ideas. Recycling waste paper. New ideas. New mediums.

It was all of that and much much more. Oh. finally we have reached the end of a very successful, exhilarating and a very creatively refreshing summer workshop this year.

The children expressed their happiness and most of them wanted it to go and on! We complete our summer workshop with a very happy note ....'I wish I could come to the art class everyday' and more questions - ' when are we going to start our classes again?' 'When are YOU coming back from your vacation?' 'I'm going on a vacation too' ' I'll be back with some sketches of the places and things I will see there'

Feels really good to be amidst their cheerfulness and glee! Really a great experience again!

I am so glad that things went off well right from the start. Although it was very exhaustive at times, I must admit that the pleasure and fulfillment of working with children is an out of the world experience. It is simply beautiful and delightful!

So we decided to take a good summer break. Enjoy the summer vacation and be back with lot more things to do!

Have fun :)

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!


Easy step by step drawings are always a favorite in my class. Since we chose tailor bird this week I needed to present a step by step instruction as well.

So here we are with 'a not a very easy step by step drawing', according to my 1st graders :)
And a few photos of the common tailor birds  visiting our yard.

Such cute birds aren't they :)

Below are artworks made by the children:

Well, I'm sure we'll post more tailor bird artworks shortly as I see them coming...

Enjoy a beautiful spring weekend!
