Art is to express yourself

This Wednesday’s art workshop was on the classic blow painting technique. To blow diluted paint with a plastic straw to let it spread and form patterns. To put it more lyrically, to make the paint dance to your music. This technique is something kids love to use.

But art is about expressing oneself.

So, when a child wants to sprinkle liquid paint all over the paper to create more of a splatter effect, who am I to say no? And when the end result looks brilliant like a constellation, it is better than what you set out to do.

In the end, when I made a collage out of the artworks of all the kids, I was quite pleased with the result. It was all different techniques and different patterns, but the idea is, as I said to express oneself.

It is a collage of diversity- diversity of thought and technique!

Spring trees and Autumn trees

At last Wednesday’s art workshop, the kids painted ‘Spring trees and Autumn trees’ with leaves collected from outdoors. After a refreshing walk and foraging for leaves in the neighbourhood park the kids were excited to create the artwork.

They proceeded to paint the leaves with spring and autumn colours. Then they made imprints of them on paper. They were not deterred by their messy hands or the mess on the floor, until a little accident took place. A child accidentally spilled water all over the painting. Oh la la!

But, no worries. Despite the little mishap, the painting was salvaged with some presence of mind and a little creativity.

Christmas Spectacle

The halls of école cooperative were filled with the spirit of Christmas today as we celebrated the birth of Christ with a brilliant spectacle by the children. The audience was the parents.

The parents first took a tour around the halls and classrooms which were decorated for Christmas by the children. They had a small breakfast as the children got ready for their performances. There was plenty of excitement, a bit of nerves and of course lots of Christmas magic!

The spectacle started with a short play based on the children’s book ‘le gros navet’ (the big turnip). Two kids played an elderly couple, and the others played different animals who would help the couple with harvesting a giant turnip. The play was humorous and was enjoyed greatly by both the audience and the actors.

Then it was time for some dancing! The children looked smart in their hats as they danced lively to the ‘Dans le port de Tacoma’. At the last minute, the teacher had to step in, as one child’s partner was unable to come. Well, anything is possible in the life of a teacher!

After the dance, the singing began…

When the children sang ‘the brown bear, brown bear what do you see?’ song, some of them took their respective animal characters quite seriously and dressed up in animal costumes. But the credit goes solely to the children’s parents and grandparents, who had put in a lot of effort for the costumes- especially for the mask and wings for the red bird and the tail for the blue horse. Thank you, parents!

The English song was followed by the French song ‘ma foret’ by Henri Dès. But no Christmas Spectacle would be complete without Christmas carols. The school halls reverberated with a spirited rendition of ‘vive le vent’ and ‘Jingle bells’ by the children.

Thus, came to an end the Christmas spectacle, after days of rehearsals and anticipation. Now it is time to look forward to the festival itself… école cooperative takes this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

It is the season of Thanksgiving. It is the time to think about and be thankful for all the precious things in life. The most precious of them all- Children. They who inspire us to be better people; to make this world a safer, better place. 

They who teach us kindness, forgiveness; they who lead us in the way of love, not war. They who do not know what colour means, what race means. They who see not the differences, but the similarities- that every man is the same, beneath his skin.

As unpolluted and pure as they are, we owe them as much as to leave behind an unpolluted, green earth and a society that loves, not hates. 

If you'd like to learn more about the subject, you'll find in the attached file information gathered by Niranjana about Thanksgiving.
