Summer Art Play

Can I write 'PLAY' instead of 'workshop', said Rania, as she completes her poster for the upcoming Summer Art Workshop, from the 13th of May, 2013.
Hope to make it special this year too with more art and more play, especially for the 4 to 8 year olds!

Our little artists had started their art discussions, much earlier this year probably during their spring break and they are now looking forward to create unique artworks and explore new art ideas with their friends. At first we decided to start on the 15th of May and now moved to the 13th, since it did not work out with the summer vacation plans for some of us.

The children created interesting posters on 'Earth Day' 2013 and decided to create posters for the art workshop too.

Happy creating!

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!

Beautiful and colourful macaw

The first topic chosen as we returned to our groups this July was 'The scarlet macaw'
 Gorgeously colourful and an amazingly large parrot, the 'Scarlet Macaw' turned out to be a fascinating subject to explore! We did a drawing - colouring - painting session, based on the images viewed and facts explored and enjoyed it thoroughly.
Here is the step by step scarlet macaw illustration:

Viewing actual photographs of the macaw helped the children decide the background effects, the shades of colours on the feathers, the profile and the details.

Emphasis on the tough beak, claws and the rainforest backdrop are really amazing!

Some of them decided to write down the facts as well, although it was optional :)

This is a glimpse of one of the sheets I could capture before it gets into their folders!

A great response to an interesting topic last week!
Happy creating!


This past week was full of amazing art and craft activities. Especially because it was the spring break and as always we had a lovely list of topics planned for our holiday session. I was really happy to use up our big collection of cereal and cookie boxes this time. Although we had to find more boxes, as more dino lovers joined the gang! This happens all the time!
So here are the 'Prehistoric Dinosaur dioramas or landscape with dinosaurs. The title couldn't be the same for everyone and so we also had to call them Dinosaur land or Dinosaur Park!
All of them turned out GREAT! The children enjoyed every bit of it and that's for sure.

What was interesting was that the children liked the idea of drawing, colouring and cutting out the dinosaurs, the mountains, volcanoes and choosing their own layouts. They needed help with preparing the cereal box and in making the plants and grass.

We also made a few 'Beautiful forests' out of these boxes. We'll post those shortly…
