Transformative Art Education in Madurai school

A warm greetings from AJTCMC staff and community!

The months of June and July are usually hectic for the schools and colleges. Therefore, we had to plan our after school and week end classes, as per the availability of the students.

 

Graduation Day on 1 June 2019 for the DDM Course that commenced in 2014


This was the day, the I batch DDM course students completed their projects and they were awarded certificates. We also had a display of their paintings, interacted with the parents and gave an orientation about the 2019-2023 classes.   There were 55 students and the attendance during the four years was on and off.   Since these children were dependent on their parents to come to the centre, there was an irregularity.   However all the children who graduated, completed 120 hours of painting and drawing, 90 hours of multimedia applications on the computer and 140 hours of dance over the four years.

June 2019 : 18 to 20 June 2019Working with Artist Babu: STEM for middle school – An art oriented workshop and training session for the peer educators

STEM - The second session for the potential college students who would later become trainers. We had 9 sessions of quizzing each for ten minutes and 6 hours of lecture and discussions. These have been highly promising sessions. It was "all women" sessions though we didn't plan that way. For the next sessions we will improve the gender balance! We had thirteen participants on three days. Allwin was the main science lecturer and Dr.Vidya handled preparing a challenging assessment.

 

6th July 2019 A history class with paint brush....
On Saturday the 6th July 2019 we had a great history class with the trainers and peer educators. For the discussion session, we watched sections of the movies Troy, Rudrama Devi, Bahubali, Jodha Akbar and Gandhi. The conversations were around understanding the historical trajectories of science, technology, war and peace, and the development. 
The missing data is about the "civilians" ordinary men, women and children. We analysed the five landscapes in the Tamil Country, with a few murals and contemporary paintings.

Clearing Math Myths...
The math class yesterday had great responses. It took a while for the students to warm up. The teachers had to try hard to make the learners understand that learning math is not a stiff, competitive text book activity. The math problems don't exist in the text books and the text answers don't match the real life solutions...
It was money management, profit, loss and decision making for the juniors.
Pythagoras theorem and its applications for the senior learners. We fitted in two fun activities to understand angles, objects, and perspectives in visuals. The two tallest kids were seated on two high ladders, and the others were asked to sit in various corners of the hall at different heights... 
In another activity the created various angles and right angled triangles using wooden scales. The four hours of class went very fast.

Impact: During these months we have networked with the next batch of peer teachers and learners.   Since we usually train the undergraduate students in the II and III years of the course, the configuration of the teachers keep changing every year.   Now AJTCMC training system is adept to handle this training, and ensure that there is continuity in the teaching style and modules.
