30.10.2013 – Inter Class Mask Making Competition

”A work of art is the unique result of a unique temperament.”

We, at QVS , believe that creating art expands a child's ability to interact with the world around him. It is a pivotal mode of self-Expression and creativity. It also develops self-confidence of the child. And ‘mask making’ is one of the best creating arts that can serve these purposes.

A Mask is a disguise that not only hides your real face but also changes you as a person. As soon as you put it on, you become someone else. It turns Peter Parker into’ Spiderman’ and Clark Kent into ‘Superman’. Keeping the importance of mask making in view, an inter-class ‘Mask Making Competition’ was organized for queens of class IV on 30 October 2013. Our queens had to prepare different masks using pastel sheets and colours of their choice.

The event was a success. Creativity of our queens knew no bounds. They created beautiful masks using different colour combinations. Different types of masks- full mask, half mask, eye mask, animal mask and many more were created. The event not only gave a chance to showcase their talent but also acted as a confidence booster for our queens. The creations of our queens were highly appreciated.

25.10.2013 - Battle of Bits : Collage Making

“ The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls”

A collage is a work of art composed of numerous materials such as paper, newsprint, photographs, ribbons or other objects attached to a background support. Originating from the French word ‘coller’, meaning ‘ to glue’, a collage allows one to experiment with a wide range of disconnected materials to achieve amazingly harmonized end results.

At QVS it is believed that the goal of education can never be exclusively academic. The idea immortalized by Oscar Wilde: ‘Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life’ essentially implies that art plays an indispensable role in exposing learners to the immense possibilities of innovation and creative expression, thereby enabling them to experience the multidimensional facets of life. With the aim to make learning a delightful activity leading to endless vistas of wonder, discovery and expression, ‘Battle of Bits: Collage Making Competition’ was organized for the students of class VII on October 25, 2013. The students made attractive collages with varied themes and kaleidoscopic patterns. This activity was aimed at inspiring pupils of the nation’s ideal of a conglomerated existence and celebration of unity in diversity. At the same time, it focused on realizing the principle of ‘ learning by doing’ by utilizing various fabrics like paper, yarn, stamps and magazines cut-outs for making collages.

This activity gave immense exposure to the creative minds of the queens by stimulating their imagination and inculcated in them a sense of appreciation for art and craft. At the same time, it enhanced their hand – eye coordination, colour recognition, motor skills and problem solving skills. They expressed a deep sense of satisfaction after participating in this activity. The result is as follows:
