Engaging in art activates the creative right brain. Research shows that art and other creative focused activites allow children to build skills such as planning, concentration, attention to detail, patience and thinking out of the box. Plus it’s a load of fun!

The day was made perfect by students displaying their talent individually; each piece of art infused with their own thoughts, creations, ideas and colours to fill up their pictures. They were given the crayons by the RDF and TMF. The students were seen working hard at creating pictures and colouring them with a lot of care.

Another activity that was conducted was ‘Hand Printing’ which is a form of art work in which the fingers, hands and

The pictures were displayed on soft board and appreciated during school assembly.  The students felt pleased with their effort and developed more self confidence in drawing and coloring.
