Art and Fun this summer!

...and yes, we did play too! As mentioned in our last post, we enjoyed creating a lot of crafts and artworks during our summer program 2013. To think that we managed to do all that in spite of the soaring temperatures, was altogether overwhelming!

Here's looking back into some of the activities that were most enjoyable - We planted seeds, making coasters from reused paper, making paper mache bowls, tribal tikis, magic carpets and slippers, tribal arts from India and other countries, fun with watercolors and acrylics and many more crafts using clay and recycled materials.

There were many children who enjoyed craft making the most as they do not get to make them all by themselves and they loved all the stuff they could make and display. We had the second group of children who explored basic and advanced techniques in shading, still life, landscape, portraits and comic book creations. It was an enjoyable session.

And now it is time for most schools to reopen after the summer break and so we get back to our regular art class schedules from this July on wards.

Sharing a few glimpses of our creations:









Happy creating! We appreciate all the comments we've been receiving. Thank you!

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.…
