The day two of art workshop kick started with enthusiastic big eyed kids eager to know what they were going to do. Lots of questions, massive energy and focus filled the environment at K.D Gaikwad’s school hall.
A total of 125 kids were present for the morning, 10.30 a.m-12 p.m workshop and 125 kids for the afternoon 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. workshop. The topic was “Draw what you like”.
As time went on and the colors started showing on the drawing sheet, we were nothing, but surprised about the children’s creativity and talent. The children drew different things like cartoons, sceneries, animals, and the jungle.
The excitement in us grew manifold when we started to collect their drawing sheets for assessment as the kind of maturity and details they showed in their art was unbelievable.
Laxmikant, aged 21, one of the volunteers present for the art workshop said, “It is true, we do underestimate the underprivileged way too much. It is time they get credit for their hard work and their natural art and colour skills and it is time we change our narrow thoughts. Balakalakaar is the perfect and much needed platform provided by AIESEC in Mumbai”.
As soon as the workshop ended the kids rejoiced and some of the stars that they are, showed us their creative gymnast side as well.
Is apprenticeship an effective way in skilling youth along with school?
