On 14th March, the middle school and senior school students presented their Art Pods work, which were displayed during the assembly. The display included the authentic Wall Hangings called Torans, inspired by African motifs. Brown sheets, rustic and vibrant shades of poster paint were used to make it. They finished the pieces with tassles and threads. While doing it they also learnt the nuances of African folk art – which is very earthy, strong and beautiful.
Grade 6 was introduced to the artist Raza. They learnt the use of geometric figures and the use of the “Bindu” which was his trade mark and grade 7 did a reproduction of the artist Paul Klee’s seamless grid-art form by learning to use water colours for the first time.
During the Art Pods class for grade 9-11the students made photo frames of mount board employing a mosaic concept using coloured craft paper. The finishing was done with OHP sheets and a stand. They learnt precision in cutting and gluing to form a final pattern. Worli painting using acrylic paints on black sheets was made. They also made papier-mâché decorative items. They learnt the basics of papier-mâché using newspaper. They used Areca palm plates as a base. They also learnt to dry, add layers and finish it by painting with acrylic paints.
The students of grade 6 presented a lively Band performance to the tune of “Wonder Wall”, and “Knocking on the Heaven’s door”. The Band members consisted of Singers, Darsh Kadam and Advay Ramgopal, Drummers- Shivam Kapil and Milan Machiah, and Guitarist Aniket Thyagarajan and Pradyun Singh.
The last whole school assembly finally ended with resounding applause.
