LET'S START ART : FEBRUARY 2019

Let's Start Art

The academic year 2018-19 comes to its end in this March, so we conducted the last of Let's Start Art workshops for the session in the month of February. The students of class 3rd, 4th, and 5th belong to the age group of children who spend a lot of their time playing indoor and outdoor. So, in this session, we asked the students to draw their experiences about playing with dogs and received amazing stories.

Let's Start Art: Water Conservation
Water, one of the most important natural resources, is diminishing rapidly, and we need to work towards saving it immediately. In the month of October, the first set of Let's Start Art workshops were conducted to make the students aware of Water Conservation and to instigate ideas of saving water into their minds. 
The second set of workshops were conducted after the Dussehra holidays, and we asked the students to draw their experience at the Dussehra fair. The students made adorable drawings of Ravana, the Rakshasa king of Lanka.

Teachers' Day Card
In India, the 5th day of September is celebrated as Teachers' Day, in the memory of the country's former Vice-President Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan. So, the theme of the first set of Let's Start Art sessions was Teachers' Day in which we asked the students to make greeting cards for their teachers.  The teachers were equally grateful to receive the adorable greeting cards as the students were to make those.
