“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist when he grows up.”
The art exhibition plays a crucial role in presenting the childrens’ art work. The thematic approach of the art work provides a valid context through which the significance and meaning of each work can be re-established. Art also strengthens problem solving and critical thinking skills.
Three days Art workshop was conducted with zeal and enthusiasm from 18 January 2019 to 20 January 2019 by the art facilitators Mr. Abhinav Yagnik and Ms. Sarasija Subramanyam in the premises of Delhi Public School, Pune. The session started with the discussion of the projects done in Term II. Teachers reflected on the work done by the children. The works of the children were appreciated by the mentors. Later the projects for the next term were discussed in detail. The mind map of the projects like The Mexican Art, Totem Poles, Snake and ladder were executed with the help of which teachers wrote the tutorial note for each project. This was the initiation of the preparation of the Curation work which is to be taken place in the month of March.
On the second day The Art Education Program encouraged the children to express their individuality. It is a supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge. Each child is different from each other, to show case their talent, the Mentors guided the teachers for planning of the art exhibition i.e. Curation- “Khel Khel Mei- Art ”. The mentors helped the teacher with the curation, curatorial notes and in designing the poster for each grade.
