Rangoli made on newspaper!

We came up with this interesting idea of creating 'Rangoli' using newspaper. It is easy to make and use.
Supplies required: Newspaper, scissors, poster/ acrylic paints, PVA glue, glossy, metallic and colourful paper cutouts.

Here are some of our 'Rangolis' made today!









Here is how we cut the newspaper:

 
 The folds help the children to align and create their own patterns.We used poster paints, mostly dark colors to cover the text. Keeping the paint slightly thick also helps to cover the text easily. Pasting cutouts of colored or shiny paper with or without textures, enhances the design and gives it a festive look! Finally the 'Rangoli' design can be placed on the floor and decorated with diyas around it!
We are working on more designs with lots of festive cheer and excitement.
Hope you enjoyed our pattern making!

Happy creating!

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!
