Project Report | Dec 23, 2022
Creativity Conquers All

By Mahnoor Mahboob | Program Officer - Special Programs and Advocacy

Zindagi Trust strives to help students reach their full potential and incorporating art education within its schooling model is an integral component towards achieving that. Art education allows students to express themselves creatively and to explore their identity in an open and accepting environment. 

With the commencement of the new academic term in August, classes resumed for all grades and after participating in an art intensive summer camp, quite a number students came back to school eager to let their creative juices flow again. 

While the students of formative grades delved into introduction to art and learning simple compositions, students of Grade 5 were taught how to combine different elements of arts they’ve learned such as form, line, shape, texture and space to create a visual piece signifying its unique meaning and value. 

Taking inspiration from one of the pioneers of abstract art- Wassily Kandinsky, students combined these art elements to create abstract paintings. Simultaneously, students were also familiarised with colour theory through engaging in an artwork activity regarding warm and cool colours. 

Students of Grade 6 studied how spaces are given character through art and design and were assigned to draw rural and urban landscapes alongside learning about impressionism- to meticulously recreate a visual representation of the spaces they see in everyday life using different brush stroke techniques. 

Students of higher grades, learned one point perspective where a three-dimensional scene is created on a two-dimensional surface through the use of lines originating from a single source, i.e one point. 

By engaging students in various art styles and equipping them with insighful theoretical knowledge, students were then given the liberty to voice out their inner feelings and ideas with creative depiction through learning and practising Expressionism. 

Trying new creative art assignments in class is an essential way to foster creativity and help students acquire an appreciation for art and its many forms. Students are also exposed to works of different artists, both local and global to make them develop meaningful connections between the world around them and their own lives and understand how art ties culture and identity together. For this purpose, a visit of art students from different grades was arranged to different exhibition venues of the Karachi Biennale- Pakistan’s largest, contemporary art forum. Students commented on how visits like these make them develop an even deeper appreciation for art and its utility as it objectively shows them how problem-solving, critical thinking, communication and creativity comes together to create art. 

Through providing students with the knowledge and intricacies of different art forms and mediums including pottery, string art and so on, Zindagi Trust believes it can instill numerous skills in students that will build their confidence and help them become distinguishable well-rounded individuals.
