The AAA-2010 began on July 16th, with a 3 day Art festival at Dakshin Chitra, a fantastic place for those art-loving people, in the East Coast Road, Chennai.
So, I took my girls for a taste of art to soak into us !!! And I was overwhelmed by the happiness in my girls, while coming back. It had been a fun trip, time well spent in learning new things and most of all, gave them an exposure of what different kinds of art survive around our villages.
That was a cute art made out of shells. So many children did this and they were so happy with the result. It’s so easy and simple.
Then Sr took up painting on a peepal leaf and she gave it an artist’s touch to it… 😉
While Sh tried her hand at candle making !!!!
Then, there is this wonderful art of writing on a palm leaf called Patta chitra !!! The children were going crazy writing their names, but see what the experts can draw on it !!! Its amazing !!! I never knew that such an art form existed before this visit.
Then there was the pot painting, block printing, kalamkari painting and puppet making tooo !!! Look at this cute puppet !!!!
Other than this, workshops on the techniques of photography was going on, in batches. I also found out that the story-telling session was real fun, but we missed it listening to it.
The most important and the most joyful experience for my girls was pottery. Oh, how they loved to dirty their hands with clay and create something so wonderful and pretty. Now, I have two proud potters at home !!!! 😉
The elder one’s looked like this. 🙂
Not only potter, I also have a basket weaver , who can weave her dreams into beautiful products like this !!!!
On the whole, this trip to the Art Festival was an enriching experience for the three girls !!! We are all happy with the things we learnt, did and brought home to show our talent !!!
