Selling CBSE-i Handicrafts
A stupendous display of the art and craft products was observed on November 07, 2015 during the Fundraising Event of School Enterprise Challenge wherein the students of grade 1 to 8 of CBSE-i (international curriculum) showcased their creativity in the form of alluring clay models, pen stands, pendants using paper mache clay, decorative file covers using jute and handmade sheets, paper flowers using sticks, old newspapers, paper plates, decorative earthen lampsdiyas using spoilt ones.
They gave a new look to the obsolete things at their house and showcased their aesthetic sense in a splendid manner. They also made silver boxes using silver foil and old boxes, crayon stands using disposable cups, bead material, flower pots using old bottles and spray colours, coconut and stone show pieces by using coconut husk, stones and clay, candles using old ones with stand.
The wall hangings using newspapers and mirrors, rangoli using old transparencies and decorative material, mandanas using old sunpack sheet and decorative material, lanterns using reused colourful sheets and satin ribbon, paintings using jute, handmade sheets and old cards lying waste at home, baskets using clay, cardboard, ceramic cones and mirrors, torans using waste jute, used sheets, posters and beads were highly acclaimed as those were the items to ornament the house during the festive season of Diwali.
The spare and old newspapers were turned into beautiful envelopes and paper bags and cloth bags were also made using old curtain cloth and wooden sticks. These could be replaced with the polybags which would help protect the environment from the hazardous effects of polythenes and promote the three R’s i.e. reduce, reuse and recycle and at the same time give a stupefying look to the bags.
In a nutshell, the event was very successful and gave exposure to the children to show their best creation. They tried to innovate different products under the guidance of the Visual Arts teacher Ms. NidhiJain. This event supported the noble cause of helping the underprivileged children in Zambia.
