Description: “Through a painting, we can see the whole world" - "Hans Hofmann" : - The much sought-after, Art Fair was organised on the 28th and 29th of October 2022 in the Junior School. The venue came alive with a splash of colours as the exhibition was inaugurated by our honourable Principal, Br. Robert, Mr Naresh Chopra, Mrs Aprajita Pal and Mrs Ritu Kaushal. The work of our budding artists was on display in its full splendour with the exhibits unveiling various art forms and skills such as origami, drawing, painting, paper layering techniques and lace sheets made using paper cutting techniques. Taking inspiration from Indian Cultural Art Forms the boys showcased eye-catching Mandala Art. Our boys also used old discarded items to create Scarecrow Muppets for the school garden. The imagination and creativity of the young Columbans were in bloom with the display of an array of thematic artworks, craft models and collaborative projects using different techniques and media to experience and experiment with colours. The well-trained ushers skillfully explained the tedious but engaging process and efforts that went into preparing the art displays. On the first day of the fair, the students thoroughly enjoyed watching and participating in the Balloon Art, Spin Art, Mandala Art and Pottery activities. They also had fun witnessing a magic show and a puppet show. On the second day, Team Fevicryl and HT PACE organised on-the-spot activities such as Arts and Craft Workshop and a Painting Competition. The vegetable garden near the pool was a novel addition this time. The enthusiastic parents were at their creative best at the Ikebana and Rangoli competitions. The children also had a merry time at the bubble station and flew colourful kites with their parents. The newly developed ‘Green Patch’ marked our commitment to planet Earth. The creative stalls of Paper Toy Station, Decorate your Cupcakes, Cookies and Donuts and other game stalls with straws, bowls, maize, etc. garnered the attention of the young Columbans. Other creative stalls namely Halloween Theme, Break the Pyramid and Science stalls also attracted children as they had fun generating electricity with potatoes, made kaleidoscopes and invisible ink cards, etc. The Tattoo and Face-painting stalls were abuzz as was the artistic DIY jewellery station. To further entertain the children, there was a performing artist – alive Spiderman who danced and grooved with our little boys. A Health and Sanitation Camp by World Vision India was held at the Art Fair, as was a He for She Gender Equality Awareness Camp by the Social Justice Society of the Senior School in order to generate awareness among the parents and children about gender equality. There was also a special stall with paintings on sale, whose proceeds went to the Social Justice Society. All the creative stalls were visited and highly lauded by Br. Robert, Br. Sameer and Br. Hugo. The artistic and creative display of talent over these two days was much appreciated by one and all.
