We had a week long painting activity for our 5 to 8 year olds, around the time of Holi. The theme was simply 'Colourful'! Which meant anything colourful, vibrant, using as many colours in our artworks!

The activity progressed in the following order : Choose a cutout of any shape - Use it as a stencil to draw the shape - Think of all the lovely patterns that could fit into the chosen shape - Draw the pattern or design - Paint it using fluorescent paints or other poster colors - Let the painting dry and place the cutout on top of the design - Spray the background to finish.

Here are some of our artworks on display:

It was easy and fun to make these artworks! We added cutouts of butterfly, leaf, heart and a hexagon later, as we plunged into the creative spree... as always :)

Enjoy creating and thanks for viewing!

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!
