ARTWORKS INSPIRED BY NATURE - Butterfly cut outs


This is another delayed post showing up after the temperatures have come down and the city is in the midst of heavy monsoon showers! Presently these gorgeous butterflies must have found a cozy spot in the children's rooms :)



Thinking of displaying artworks and the fun involved in making something for their rooms, we love including such make-it-the-way-we-like topics. This one turned out super good!
There are great many ways to bring our children's work to focus. One way to show them that we value their work, is by helping them display their artworks in their rooms and it surely adds a positive connect between teacher, child and parent.

We were discussing summertime and the changes we noticed in our gardens and neighbourhood. Since butterflies were the most spotted during the time of the season, we chose to make these cutouts.

Stock paper or white cartridge sheets, coloured pencils and 3d glitter outliners were the materials used.

Children ages 8 to 9 years could draw these lovely butterflies freehand, colour and cut them out without help.
Bravo! I love them :)

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!
