Ramana Sunritya Aalaya (RASA)
A report for GlobalGiving- December 2020 - January 2021
By Dr Ambika Kameshwar
Regular online classes continued for our students. Though the lockdown rules were eased out, we decided to continue the online mode of teaching till this academic year ends. We had classes on all the tools of Indian theatre.
Additionally, we had a small Christmas sharing about the story of Jesus Christ and stories on Santa Claus. Students loved to paint Christmas trees and bells.
Pongal is an Indian harvest festival. It is an important festival celebrated in south of India where RASA is based. RASA organized online session for drawing and painting. Students enthusiastically draw and painted art works based on Pongal theme. The pictures depict the mud pot filled with rice, lentils, ghee and jaggery cooked on wood fire typically outdoors in the farms. It represents the abundance in the crop.
In January 2021, regular classes were held through online mode, and stories based on Indian heroes were discussed as a part of Republic Day. Students Drew and painted patriotic themes and understood the importance of Republic day through art.
