Creative Strokes

The budding artists
The budding artists

29 September 2021 | 10 am – 12 pm | SAMADHAN, Dwarka

On 29th September, 12-year-old Vasundhara woke up with a big smile and was excited to get ready to go to SAMADHAN. She demanded that her siblings do not create any delays while her parents helped her get dressed. Vasundhara was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy at birth and used to come to our Dwarka centre for special education and early intervention programmes. Due to the pandemic, she had not stepped outside her house for more than a year, and today she was looking forward to meeting new friends and play with colours.

SAMADHAN, in collaboration with the Art For Change (AFC) Foundation, has initiated the ‘Creative Strokes’ workshop series for children with intellectual disabilities to express themselves through the medium of art. The workshops have been designed to enable the children to capture their version of the world and celebrate life, and the core idea behind it is ‘Art Heals’. Issac Gergan, the Director of AFC and an artist himself, is the series facilitator. On the day of the first workshop, he taught the children some basic shapes and how to draw animals, birds and humans by combining different shapes. He also taught them to create a basic photo frame using paint, shapes and simple designs on paper.

Ten children, between the ages of 10 and 20, along with their parents, had attended the workshop and created unique pieces of art that spoke a million words. They chose their colours and drew their own version of colourful life-forms on the canvas. Their excitement knew no bounds when SAMADHAN provided them with their very own, individual handmade folders and crayons. We also took this opportunity to distribute awareness brochures to the parents to disseminate vital information on child safety issues. To keep the excitement of our little artists on a high, the next workshop in the series will be held soon!
