LET'S START ART: MAY 2019

Let's Start Art
In the Let's Start Art sessions, students often make paintings that can easily help us figure out their relationship with their parents/siblings, the surroundings they are living in, the things they love or hate and many such factors.  In this session, we asked the students to make a paper mask of their favorite person, thing or fictional character.

"Did you notice, I'm in class 3rd now, and that means I'll get to attend the art classes", said Golu from Government Primary School, Nagwa, when we started the art sessions.  The new academic session started with the first week of April, so did our art sessions. In the first set of workshops, we asked the students to draw what they know about their city- Varanasi.

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.

The 15th Pravasi Bhartiya Diwas Convention was held on 21-23 January 2019 in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh. Before the convention, all the primary schools of Varanasi were assigned with different countries and the students were supposed to learn about the country and present a rally during the commencement of the event. We conducted the Let's Start Art sessions around the same theme.

The month of November started with the Diwali holidays and extended till the festival of Chhath (छठ), so the students came back to their schools after a long break full of celebrations and sweets. The first set of Let's Start Art sessions were conducted to make the students document their experience of the festivals.  The students made drawings of decorated houses, Rangoli (colorful patterns made outside the house), Diwali celebration and Chhath rituals.
