“The earth without art is just eh”-Lazy Trice
The Art Attack Day was conducted on 18th and 19th of August through the online platform to aid students generate and conceptualize artistic ideas and expertise. These arty crafty days were specially designed for the students of Std. III and IV of Don Bosco Primary School, Matunga, where they made beautiful art pieces using materials which were easily available at home.
Mrs. Tejashree Vesvikar and Mrs. Mural Rebello, teachers in-charge discussed the topics with the Head Teacher of the Primary Section, Mrs. Griselda Fernandes. To pique our young artisans’ curiosity they were informed about all the materials required well in advance. It is said that “Art knows no boundaries,” and we encouraged our budding Picasos to discover their inner artist.
It is a great way for kids to express themselves and to instill a love for learning art that they will carry with them throughout their lives. As Walt Disney rightly said “Art is Fun”. In order to understand the art piece, detailed instructions and references were given. The students were asked to put together a little magic, an eye for sketching and some imagination with lots of fun.
The following creative and unique art techniques were taught:

The teachers in charge initiated the activity with a short power point presentation explaining the importance of their masterpiece. They demonstrated the art work virtually with a close up of the hands and the steps the children had to follow to complete their art work. The class teachers of std. 3 and 4 also ensured that each and every student participated well. Later the students were asked to post their work of heart to their respective class teachers.
Keith Saldanha of 4 A, Captain of the Primary Section said, “The art masterpiece “Yin-Yang Symbol” has taught me how to balance two opposite things (Yin-Yang) i.e. good and bad have brought out the positivity in me.”
Art exploration is not only for fun and entertaining but also educational.
Ms. Mary Fernandes, the art teacher commented, “It is heartening to see our young Boscoites coming out with creative art pieces.” It was a day of colorful learning. Here at Don Bosco, Matunga we focus on the process, not the product.
