Micrography Artworks

While discussing micrography or how to create an image entirely out of text, with the fifth and sixth graders, the children of primary classes wanted to take part as well. We came up with an easy lesson for them and distributed simple pencil drawings of their choice. Most of them chose a lotus, sun, peace dove or a dolphin. We decided to use words that describe them or any words of their choice. Here are a few to look at:

Ananya uses words that can describe her dolphin the best!

 Antara, 7year old, decides to use her name instead!

 Devyani can spell the word 'sun' :).

Rohan has done a great job for a seven year old!

Zoya is seven too and her text looks really neat!

Enjoy a creative day!

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!
