Team Blue Pen volunteers organised Art event at IIT Flyover and behind Safdarjung hospital, giving children with the preguided opportunity to express themselves for which we provided coloring pages of animals prepared by our volunteer, Neha sharma.
Rubi (6 year old) and Vinod (4 year old) were the winner among all the drawings.
While discussing about event, Volunteer (Intern) Ms Neha sharma mentions, “The artistic side of children is beyond imagination. What we see as normal is different to a child. When we give the children with opportunity to express themselves, they come up with ways we can’t imagine as adults.”
Coordinator-Volunteer (IIT-Safdarjung line), Ms Kavita Chaudhary further expresses ” Sense of belongingness towards one’s work is also very important. Giving separate sheets to children were very encouraging for the children to participate in the activity. They not only enjoyed Colouring but we also got to see who all are interested in art and art related fields. Colouring pages not only provides a sense of how organised a child is in seeing things but also how differently (or creatively) a child sees the world around them. The children were appreciated for their efforts. It was nice to see how they transformed the blank pages into colourful art.”
