Plants and Animals are our Friendsby Gaurav Tiwari
Through our Let’s Start Art sessions we have noticed that personal encounters of students with plants and animals or our environment, in general, are usually associated with positive emotions and connotations.
The second set of Let's Start Art sessions was conducted on the theme "Plants and Animals are our friends"

Day of a Sincere Student: A Mural at a Government Primary Schoolby Karishma SrivastavaA wall mural is the annual activity conducted after Let's Start Art sessions are conducted in a school for a year. Students work with the art instructors in finalising the layout of the artwork weeks before they start working on the wall. Every aspect of the artwork is imagined and created by students, after the topic is brainstormed in the class and children are asked to draw their own layouts for the mural.
Students at Government Primary School, Durgakund completed their first mural in a classroom of their school, under the supervision of art instructors.
The Fair and Cleanlinessby Karishma Srivastava
Before children learn to read and write, they learn to draw. Those tiny little scribbles on the walls, slate, or paper, all of these move children towards learning the skill of writing. Drawing, in this sense, is a significant part of the process of acquiring literacy. Let's Start Art sessions at government primary schools are the space for children, where they have the opportunity to express emotionally significant experiences while connecting and relating to the content that they are learning at school.
Coronavirus, Lockdown, and Experiencesby Karishma SrivastavaAs the first wave began to fade out, the Uttar Pradesh government started to prepare for the reopening of schools from March 1st, 2021. We also conducted Let’s Start Art sessions in a few mohalla classes to reconnect and interact with children before the schools officially opened. In the month of February 2021, our art instructors Ajay, Anjali, and Neelam conducted 14 art sessions in 8 Government Primary Schools of Varanasi with around 113 students.
