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.

Very creative expressions by all of them! Join us as we prepare for yet another journey into the magical land of fun with colors! Looking forward to watch the excitement and the merry making!

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!

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.…
