‘Joy of Seasons’ was the theme of ARTiculate this year which was conducted on 15th August 2019 – yes, on the occasion of our 72nd Independence Day. As we know, we at Presidency believe in doing ordinary things in an extraordinary way. Thus, our way of celebrating our Independence Day is different from the usual way.
In addition to the regular activities which follow flag hoisting, we had Arts competition in which it was mandatory for every student to participate. Art is something by which we can recognize and enhance our skills, and express ourselves truly. We know that children have lots of creativity and they usually love to paint, perform craft and make some models, etc. Kids are always interested in doing something new and Presidency is interested in discovering the hidden art in its kids.
On this precious day, we paid tribute to our bold, heroic and courageous soldiers along with social reformers who had dedicated their lives for the independence and welfare of our country. “USE MADE IN INDIA PRODUCTS; NEVER FORGET YOUR MOTHERLAND; TECHNOLOGY IS NOT WRONG, PEOPLE’S WAY OF USING IT IS WRONG,” said our Praveen sir. These sentences really inspired most of our students.
This time we had 7 topics including drawing and colouring, surface painting, pixel art, collage, pencil shading, clay modelling and 3D printing. Approximately 115 masterpieces were presented by the students from which winners and runners were selected for each category.
“Pencil shading by 7th Toucans (Harshavardhan, Srishanth, Deepak and Sai Harsha) was excellent as they used a stone to shade their artwork. Their work was natural as it typically represented their age group,” exclaimed D. Venkatesh sir, one of the judges of ARTiculate.
Kids represented the theme through their ART work in a marvellous way. It was a blend of joy and sorrow together. Students exhibited great teamwork and commitment.
Naughty painters (Spoorthi, Srinidhi, Siddhi, Rishitha and Harshitha of 6th Wolves) happily rejoiced, “We chose surface painting as the topic and selected pots as the base. It was hard to do on the pot, but we tried our best and completed our painting in the given time. We were excited when we got our result and certificate. We did the surface painting for the first time and as we have succeeded, our confidence level increased to participate in different competitions also.”
In this way, students had a great day and a great experience which has propelled their confidence to participate in future competitions.
