The new Art and Craft room at GIIS Whitefield ignites the artistic curiosity of students
“Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.”
When the word ‘artist’ is spoken, it opens up a world of colourful expressions of life or Nature on a canvas or a drawing board. With the importance of art and craft in communication, students learn to express their creative thoughts through the sketches, paintings and drawings.
The inauguration of the new ‘Art and Craft’ room for the students of Global Indian International School (GIIS) Whitefield was a moment of exhilaration for all the students as they truly enjoy the world of art in the campus. The inauguration function comprised of the ribbon cutting ceremony by Ms. Vaishali Borde - National Head of Co-Scholastics and Early Years. Mr. Ganesh Sharma (Principal), coordinators and the art teachers were present to motivate the students. GIIS Whitefield is gifted with some of the best teachers to help students discover and explore the world of art. While art and craft go hand in hand, the students have a lot of options to showcase their hidden, treasured talent. It is seen that the students pick up the palette, the crayons, the colour pencils, the colour paints and the drawing boards with curiosity because they know for sure that every art that they create is unique and meaningful.
The purpose of instilling the essence of art in the early years of schooling from Kindergarten classes is to enhance the fine motor skills of children while they draw various shapes or use their fingers dipped in colours to impress on paper or even while sticking glue to make different craft works. As the students grow older, they become confident and develop better visual learning skills through their myriad creations as an artist. With concentration and creative thinking on the high, this reflects as improved academic performance as well. The students of GIIS Whitefield have displayed fine artistic qualities through visual art and they truly thank their mentors who have helped them gain confidence to express, to impress and to succeed in the artist’s journey.
“The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection.”
The peace, joy and the freedom of expression that the students get through art is beyond words, where every picture tells a story that has so many shades of interpretations. With the new Art and Craft room operation, we are sure to see artists in the making.
