Some of us relate vacation with staying at home and resting whereas others travel to different places to have fun. In the first set of Let's Start Art sessions, we asked the students to recall their last holiday trips and how they travelled there. The theme was intended to make the students aware of means of transportation.
"When we went to visit my grandparents, we took a train. My friend came to see me off at the station and on the way, I saw so many flowers and trees, it was beautiful", told Tarannum, a student of class 5th at Govt Primary School, Sonarpura.
"Once a plane was flying very low while crossing my colony, people came out of their houses and on their terrace to watch that aeroplane. My friends and I were playing, we saw a plane for the first time. We started dancing with joy and waving at the plane.", told Chandaprakash, a student of class 3rd at Govt Primary School, Naria.
Our Let's Start Art instructor Kavita Kumari says that Chandaprakash is a playful child but he's smart and sincere towards his studies.
In the second set of Let's Start Art sessions, the students made New Year greeting cards for their loved ones. Some of them made cards for their teachers and art instructors too.
"I help my teacher with the everyday chores of school like bringing vegetables and milk. She says I'm a responsible boy and has gifted me pens and notebooks. So, I've made this new year card for her", told Vishal, a student of class 5th at Govt Primary School, Durgakund(1).
"I love my mother the most and I've made this greeting card for her. She is feeding me with her hands in this drawing.", told Payal, a student of class 5th at Govt Primary School, Sunderpur.
"I always look forward to the art class and I really like you, so I have made my new year card for you.", told Divya, a student of class 5th at Govt Primary School, Bhadaini. She also wrote a little note on her card for the art instructor Neelam Gupta. Divya is a bright student and wants to become a teacher in her own school.
