Jain Heritage School students participated in the 'Hundred Silk Stories' project which was held from July 12 to 15. The project was conducted by Ali Pretty, the world famous artist from the UK in collaboration with The Teacher Foundation. The 3-day workshop followed by an exhibition was conducted at the JN TATA Auditorium, Bengaluru.
The project began with the students and teachers of JHS along with the members of The Teacher Foundation and Ali Pretty going on an art walk under the Hebbal flyover where they found an inspiration to create stories which helped them to design their flags.
On the second and third day of the workshop, the students and the teachers started sketching the images on KG cardboard and tracing sheet and then on the flag using hot wax and different colors.
On the last day of the workshop, the students and teachers marched in the auditorium along with their painted flags. The workshop was concluded with a key note address by Ali Pretty describing how her flags helped to create social awareness.
Through this creative project, students shared their experiences and skills that they have learnt during the process of flag making and working in a team.
Overall, it was a pleasant experience for the students by learning different forms of art related to social awareness.
