My Family, My Home: Let's Start Art Sessions in June'22by Gaurav Tiwari
It was a great experience, not only for the students but also for our art instructors who learned about the students' vacation experiences and what they enjoyed the most. The sessions with grades 4 and 5 were livelier, as each student had an interesting story to tell, not only on paper but also as a confident speaker in class.

Schools finally reopened in Uttar Pradesh after more than a year in September 2021. We also resumed Let's Start Art sessions in the Government Primary Schools of Varanasi, this time with 20 schools and approximately 710 students of the city. Since the students have experienced a learning loss due to the pandemic and lack of resources to attend online classes, we have integrated different topics from the textbooks of primary classes with the themes of our art sessions.
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.
Colourful Logics of a Childby Karishma Srivastava
Can you interpret your child's drawing?
Child Art is a result of the observations, emotions, experiences and imagination of a child, which later helps her develop into a creative person. While our children put so much effort into their drawing, we have a habit of distinguishing them as good or bad without even trying to understand them.
Some drawings are just drawings, with obvious meaning. But sometimes you can discover deeper meanings out of your child's drawings, and figure out what she/he is feeling or trying to express.

Shuruart strongly believes that introducing art into the curriculum of these children can greatly affect their learning. Studies have proven that retention can be enhanced when learning is made more fun. Through our art workshops in govt, primary schools in collaboration with Kokuyo Camlin we're trying to do just that.
