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.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!
