Pune, 28.02.2023: The Children’s Art Festival, organized by Orchids The International School, Pune- was held on 25th and 26th February 2023 at Shubham Garden, Chinchwad, PCMC.
The mega event was a culmination of all art forms that the students have learned over the academic year- Dance, Music, Theatre, and Visual art. The students got an opportunity to exhibit their talent. Nearly 1400 students and 3000+ parents gathered during the two-day event.
The objective of the event was to provide students with a bigger platform to showcase their talent. Various student-led workshops attracted both parents and students in large numbers. These workshops were conducted to strengthen parents’ bonding with their children. The students displayed amazing moves in the well-choreographed dance form. The street play performance touched on some sensitive social topics and displayed a clear conceptual understanding of various sub-domains of art forms and applied knowledge of stage and props in the theater.
The musical performances were a blend of both vocal and instrumental melodies. The DIY student-led workstation included woodwork, soap & candle making, and clay modeling, which was well appreciated by the audience. Visual Art workstations, also led by the students, had multiple counters like texture painting, coffee art, Gondh art, and live painting. Parents and students enthusiastically tried their hands at these workstations. A dedicated gallery for all the canvas paintings beautifully created by the students was much appreciated by all the parents and audience at the event.
Every student performed in 2 art forms and seamlessly moved from one stage to another, showing the immaculate planning by the organizers. The entire show was put together by the talented team of teachers and leaders of Orchids The International School.”
Speaking about the success of the event, Dr. Madhuri Sagale, VP-Academics at Orchids The International School said, “At Orchids, we firmly believe that art plays an essential role in nurturing and showcasing students’ creativity. We facilitate various art-based programs and curriculum activities throughout the year, encouraging students to explore their artistic inclinations. The art festival provided an open platform to showcase students’ dance performances, street plays, skits, musical routines, visual arts, DIY exhibitions, and live workshops. We wanted our parents to have a memorable experience, see their child’s creative side, and spend some quality time together. We believe such an experience can be a source of joy for parents and children alike.
