What I love about My Schoolby Avantika ChaurasiaChildren are innately curious beings. They tend to ask a lot of questions! But as adults, we lose sight of this innate curiosity as we get swamped with our work and responsibilities.
My Favourite Seasonby Avantika Chaurasia
Including the arts makes other subjects more enjoyable, improving learning and increasing attendance. Through our Let's Start Art sessions, we aim to achieve this.
In the second set of Let's Start Art in September, we asked students to read a chapter named "My Favourite Season" and share their memories and experiences with us through their drawings.
Bapu in the Drawings of Childrenby Avantika Chaurasia
The topic of the art sessions conducted in September was “Mahatma Gandhi”. The art sessions introduced them to the inspiring stories from the life of Mahatma Gandhi. Since, students knew little about him and his life, they were very curious while listening to the many stories of bapu. After listening to the stories about him, they were able to envision the kind of person he was, his teachings and habits and that’s what they have depicted in their drawings.
Be Clean and Healthyby Avantika Chaurasia
In the second set of Let's Start Art sessions in the month of August, we asked students to read a chapter named "Be Clean and Healthy" from their textbook and share their experiences and discuss their understanding of hygiene and cleanliness with us.
The Fairby Avantika Chaurasia
In the lets Start Art sessions this month, we asked students to read a chapter named "The Fair" from their English book and relate it to the Fair they visited.
Such topics help children express the ideas that they can not put into words. Through our let's start art program we aim to encourage such expression.
Here are a few stories that will surely bring back your childhood memories of visiting a fair.
What's in the Basketby Gaurav Tiwari
Our recent sessions were conducted on the topic "What's in the basket ?" This topic is from a book that is part of the course curriculum of the 4th standard. When children draw on a topic that is part of their surroundings, they are more confident in participation. It allows them to connect, observe and imagine with ease.
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.

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.
Cherished Memories and Summer Vacationsby Karishma Srivastava
We, as conventional readers, would find it impossible to read or write in a way that does not match the rules of a specific language. But young children start developing literacy skills right from the moment people start talking to them and playing with them. As a result, children start babbling before they speak, and scribbling- drawing before they write. Letting children express what they feel through drawing and writing in their own free way would allow them to form narratives and get them started with writing. In this month of Let's Start Art sessions, we added emergent literacy practices to make the class more engaging and help children gain confidence as well as interest in literacy education.

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.

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.
