25th January 2019

Time: 15.15 pm – 16.15 pm

Duration: 60 mins
Age Group: 7 -12 yrs 
Participants : 20

What was life like in the ’70s and ’80s before plastic invaded our lives? What ideas do you have to make our planet greener and less plastic-filled? Do you know what happens to the garbage we throw out? Can you have a zero-waste birthday party? This interactive workshop seeks to engage children in a dialogue on our garbage crisis. We will collectively put our pens to paper to illustrate our ideas for a greener planet. The workshop will end with a game themed around having earth-friendly birthday parties and celebrations. The idea is to get kids sensitised to the idea of zero-waste at a young age, and get them thinking about the impact on consumption on our lives. After all, the planet that we leave behind will be the inheritance for our children of today.

Drawing is recognized as the basic form of expression in visual arts. Drawing is often exploratory, with considerable emphasis on observation, problem-solving and composition.  This workshop aims to facilitate a better understanding of ‘drawing’ as a process of making, as well as a unique means of visual communication. Learning to see is part of drawing, and hence observing an object for a certain amount of time, perceiving several details and their characteristics are very important in the process of drawing making. This workshop is intended to encourage all the participants to draw and record things and happenings around them. “Drawing keeps the eye fresh, the mind alive, and the intuition nimble.”  (Timothy Nero)

Sign language is a visual language used by Deaf people.  It is a complete, complex language that employs signs made by moving the hands, fingers, combined with facial expressions and its own rules for word order. No one form of sign language is universal. Different sign languages are used in different countries or regions.  The Indian Deaf community uses the Indian Sign language (ISL). While ISL takes the letters from the English alphabet it isn’t simply English with hand signs; it is a different language with its own grammar and sentence construction. At the workshop, you learn the alphabet, greetings, colours, food words, and some basic conversation in Sign Language.

Adam Grant in his bestselling book, Originals, says, “Role models have a foundational impact on how children grow up and express their originality”. This made us explore the lives of pioneering women from India and bring their stories to children. We will start the workshop by reading a couple of stories from our book. Through this interactive workshop, we would like each child to identify their own role model/s, identify what traits do they like about them and in their own creative style (short story, poem or artwork) express them on paper. Encourage children to have the same conversation with their parents. Who were the role models of their parents during their childhood? Who are their role models now? Why?
