ALTERNATING COLOUR AND PATTERN PRINTING


























Repetition and patterns are created by the alternating shapes. The colours alternate as well, with dark and light shades and hues. The activity encourages children to observe the order of shapes and colours.



I remember pinning one such idea here https://in.pinterest.com/pin/74872412526283660/
We will need two toilet paper rolls to create the shapes and two shades of poster /gouache paints.

























Drawing a grid makes it easy to print.




































The shapes can be filled by smudging in the wet paint without distorting.

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!
