Through the eyes of our village school children, Aziznagar 2021-2022 An exhibition of art & craft works created by the grades 5 & 6 of village school at SIS-Campus on the 23rd, April, 2022

Art activities keep the children entertained and cultivate the creative skills in them. The grade 4 & 5 children of Aziznagar primary school are engaged in drawing & painting sessions when they visit campus on Saturdays for extra- curricular activities.

They are engaged in art & craft sessions like drawing and painting with their creative ideas  and  paper craft guided and supported  by the Sreenidhi CAS  volunteers.

They were also given designs on papers for colouring.  It was amazing to see their work so bright and attractive with vibrant colours meticulously done with patience and spending time to choose right colours and make such big charts with the help of volunteers who were equally enthusiastic and keen to help them with tips how to draw & colour showing some pictures on their cell phones.

To encourage their creativity and enhance their interest, the art work of village children are displayed at the campus on the Sreenidhi’s annual art exhibition of the Sreenidhians.

This year  as there was no senior school art exhibition at the SIS-Campus this year  (2021 – 22) their works were exhibited  on the 23rd April, 2022 on the SIS-PYP-EXHIBITION DAY.

The display were on the glass –panels in the central spine of Kalabhavn  to be able to see by all the parents and visitors to the exhibition. The exhibits also include their craft work like –paper kites, birds, fishes etc.

The village school children  around 25 visited the campus to witness their exhibits and the PYP-exhibition which was an eye opener and exposure for them to learn.                            Their exhibits were much appreciated by the visitors for their creativity and hard work.
