Let's Start Art: August 2018by Karishma Srivastava
What do you know about an agricultural farm?
The first set of Let's Start Art sessions for the month of August started with this question. Around 130 students from 5 Govt. Primary Schools in Varanasi attended the workshops.
All the students had their own element of fascination from the farms. Some of the students were fascinated by the scarecrows, while others couldn't get over the tube wells, sowing, and techniques of planting rice. It was surprising that the students, who have never been introduced to the methods of crop production and management, have observed such details on their own.

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.
