Literature Unplugged: Literature, Art, Music and Popular Culture Classes for children age 8 – 12 years starting July, Juhu

Introducing your child to Literature, Art, Music and Popular culture is as important as sending them to school. These classes have been specifically designed to inculcate in your children a love for all things cultural and artistic. The classes are a combination of popular culture and high culture. Each class will focus on a different aspect of Art and Culture. In one class we will explore the magical world of ‘Alice In wonderland” and in another read from the enchanted works of Pablo Neruda.

To explain further, if we dive into an important book like a “Tale of two Cities” we will end that class with a creative writing session wherein I will help explore your child’s imagination and writing skills. The day we dwell into the mystical world of theatre, all the children will come together and write a play, which I will help them enact.

We will work together to understand poetry better and even learn to write a few lines. Another significant aspect of the class is to understand and appreciate the importance of Art. I will travel through time and teach them about the different art movements and important artists while making sure they remain engaged and interested.

They will also be introduced to the exciting world of popular culture Once every two months we will visit a place of cultural significance. Maybe watch a play at Prithvi theatre or go visit the Prince of Whales Museum or Jahangir Art gallery. This is all a part of their growth process and will enhance their cultural knowledge.

The name comes from the wordkagaz and after this exposure, you can call yourself a kagzi too.  Handmade paper is traditionally made using various vegetable fibres or pulverised cotton rags or even discarded paper. At this workshop, participants will recycle used paper to create new paper using a deckle (wooden frame). By making their own paper, participants will experience the artistic and scientific aspects involved. It will also help them to see paper from an environmental perspective. Participants will get to take home a kit consisting of a deckle, organic colouring agents, a sponge and napkin with an instructional booklet.This will enable them to make special papers for their cards, invitations and other customised needs.

 Clay Modelling, Thursday 28 May, 2:00 to 4:00pm, Registration ₹650

Clay modeling is a form of play-based learning that encourages children to express their emotions and to think about what they are doing with their hands. Whether you’re a child or an adult, the act of shaping clay can be very calming and thrilling. After some free play, the resource person will show participants how they can conceive of a form in their mind, and then realise it with their hands. When children pull and shape the forms they have imagined into existence, they experience the deep inner joy of seeing the results of their creativity emerge from their own hands.

Film Screening – Media awareness on World Cultural Diversity Day, Friday 29 May, 2:00 to 4:00pm,  Registration ₹500

Film is a powerful tool that fascinates the young. In this session we would engage with young people through critical guided viewing of advertising media that is part of our everyday environment. Detailed viewing will enable them to understand the constructed nature of cinema. This exposure will help them to develop skills of de-constructing film images and sequences themselves. They will understand the effects of film on individuals and how the compelling imagery of films influences our understanding of the world. They will see how manipulative media push us towards a narrow homogenous culture, when we are uniquely blessed in the rich diversity of cultures that makes India, on this day celebrating World Cultural Diversity.

Cold Cooking for Hot Days, Saturday 30 May, 11:00am to 1:00pm, Registration ₹650

When the summer weather gets harsh, children love cooling foods. This workshop will show them how to combine various ingredients to make their own healthy smoothies, salads and deserts without the use of fire. Along with learning some creative cold cooking recipes, children will gain nutritional ideas that will help them to mindfully choose what they eat. Participants must bring a knife that they are familiar with using, a cutting board and an apron or at least a thick cloth or towel that they can wrap around their waists, to protect their clothes from spills.
