Every year GIIS holds a CBSE art exhibition to display the wonderful artwork done by our students. This year was no different except that the students were not given a particular theme. They were given the opportunity to choose any topic they wished to make their artwork on. This paved the way for boundless creativity and imagination.
The main objective of this exhibition was to cherish and value the different art forms. Students exhibited their skills in various art styles such as drawing, sketching, painting and stencil art to decoupage, etc. This was a very exhilarating experience for the students.
Students from grade 1 to 5 took part with great passion and vigour to cultivate the skills, gain insights and experiences to grow and further enhance their creativity.
Throughout the year, students were taught a diverse range of skills such as pencil shading, canvas painting, pot making, statue making, stencil cutting, block-printing, making dreamcatchers, etc. They were taught to make the best out of waste to create a more sustainable environment.
The art styles taught throughout the year were:
1. Cubism - It is characterized by simpler shapes and brighter colours
2. Art Nouveau - It is a decorative style characterized by sinuous, asymmetrical lines based on organic forms
3. Painterly - It is an art style characterized by visible brush strokes and texture left in the paint medium
4. Folk Art - It is an expression of the world’s traditional cultures. It is rooted in traditions that come from community and culture, expressing cultural identity by conveying shared community values and aesthetics.
The students displayed their creativity in a very beautiful way. Their art pieces were breathtaking. The cooperation, discipline and punctuality reflected by the students and their mentor made this exhibition a great success.
