Art Exhibition

The field trip was really an eye-opener for me. The curator was really engaging and was really interesting to talk to and hear from. He spoke about how he selected the works for the exhibit and about sales of artwork and valuation. Those topics really interested me, as I was not very well informed in the business aspect of art. The exhibit itself was very interesting. We spent a lot of time on the first floor, where the sculptures and the more abstract art was present. I learned a lot about abstract expressionism and developed even more respect for the style and artists. The third floor, with the more traditional pieces, was jaw-dropping. Although there was more traditional art, the concepts and the art itself seemed abstract to me. For example, this piece by Ashu Gupta which really amazed me – While traditional, the concept itself seems abstract. I realised the importance of a concept. A meaningful concept makes the artwork even more appealing and rich. All in all, the most important thing I learnt in this field trip is that art has to have a subtle, honest meaning. If that's absent, no matter how technically perfect the artist is, the art will never be historical or world changing. That's what separates good art from great art. By Anjali Mallmpooty (10 ICSE)

Middle School Celebration of Learning

Three months of hard work, collaboration, exploration and perseverance, culminated on 31 August when Middle Schoolers presented their projects to their parents and teachers at the Celebration of Learning. The students showcased around 50 projects centred around ‘interconnectedness’, the theme for this year’s CoL. They were ably guided by 12 mentors. The event reflected student learning on not just a variety of subjects which they researched on, but also helped them learn how to design and develop their projects. They also learnt important life skills such as working as a team, dealing with failure, planning for success, delegation and collaboration. Grade 7 Inventurer Adhir V Balaji while speaking about his experience said, “We learn that failure is the key to success. We had to research again and again and do the same thing again and again, to finally get the solution.” “Education is a way of equipping people to answer the questions we already have. None of these questions come packaged into Maths, Science and English. It’s a combination of all these things. Using these tools to understand these questions and answer them better is a very necessary step,” said Prasanth Sistla, an Inventure faculty member. Watch the video Celebration of Learning
