10,000th visitor on our blog!

Today we had the honor to invite the 10.000th visitor on our blog. I have no idea if 10,000 visitors in a year is a lot, normal or significant. All our friends and family have expressed their pleasure and wish that we could reach out to many more children and share with many more interested people.

We've had a majority of visitors from India, USA, UK, Russia, Pakistan, Germany, Canada, Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia, UAE and more... as shown on the audience stats!

All the postings are usually sharing experiences during the class and the little things that are precious for all of us. I represent the whole group of students sometimes as I try and recollect the feelings and expressions during most of our group sessions. Working with children has been a very inspiring experience always and  the quest to do more would never cease. The credit goes to all the children over many years for being my greatest  inspirations behind all the postings here on this blog.

Thank you all for visiting. Share our activities and love for art and nature, help children make the world a better place, send us your suggestions or queries.... keep visiting :)

Think creative. Think nature.

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!

FREE-HAND DRAWING - why it is good for children

Free hand drawing is one of the activities which a parent can incorporate into their child's daily routine for the development of hand-eye coordination, which is itself crucial for the overall physical development of the child and is the basis for other creative activities like painting, craft making, sculpture, and more. In most cases, children take to drawing naturally and enjoy creating on their own. Always nice to keep papers, sketch books and pencils handy for them, even while travelling!

Some toys are designed to assist hand-eye coordination development, like fitting things together(one can use simple unbreakable cups and bowls too), jigsaw puzzles and so on.
In many instances we do come across students who panic because they are unable to complete their drawing related projects or usually end up doing them with much dissatisfaction.

Practice in free hand drawing does make children confident with their drawing projects and school assignment related artworks as they grow up.…
