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!

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!
