Teaching is god's gift. And I feel honoured to have the gift third year in a row. This ARTS WORKSHOP held at SINDA, on 8th September 2012, marks the third year of my teaching experience. It was an enriching and exhilarating day for me as an unexpected amount of around 35 kids arrived to attend the workshop. I followed an agenda that I had created earlier. The motive of the workshop was to teach the kids the proper way of sketching and coloring using basic shapes.
|Creating characters using basic Shapes.|
Indeed, the response from the participants were huge and they all enjoyed the workshop. Many even personally came up to me to thank for the informative session. In order to make full use of the 3 hours provided to me, I had to prepare a step-by-step agenda and come up with a flow for the workshop. Thus, I began with an introduction of myself and informed the kids of what animation is and that the basic to animation is drawing. Next, I had started the session with a short flash clip that encompasses of basic shapes that can be arranged to become as a fish and finally with colour. This was the sneak preview of the whole session. Each student were attentive and active during the workshop as they came up with excellent pieces of art pieces as seen from the photos. Before ending the session, the students were put through a drama competition that allowed many to display their talents. Ultimately, at the end of the arts workshop, prizes were presented to the top 3 growing artists and one kindergarten student for her excellent talent. At the end of the day, I had an enriching experience and I believe that this is not the end but the beginning of my teaching journey.

Back there in India I remember I used to draw on egg shells, (but now those eggs have disappeared!!). Once I came back to Singapore, the gap increased as I couldn’t find time to experiment in various mediums other than paper.
Then once again when I was in Year 1, I started doing those egg shell drawings again. Although it was a few, it definitely was a good kick-start.
But to start off with, I practiced by writing in names on the rice seeds….It was such an interesting experience and every time I finished each drawing I had a self-satisfaction that is really difficult to express through words. On top of it, when customers bought and told me how amazing it is, that was indeed a wonderful boost… I seriously did not expect much of a crowd, but due to its
uniqueness, at the end of the two days, it was the other way round! There was a huge demand for rice drawing in NTU and I ended up facing a busy day J
Being a person who loves various forms of art and its intricacies…rice drawing was one that allowed me to practice patience, steadiness and in a way to be focused too. And one important lesson is no matter how big or small art depiction can be…the lesson learnt is one that will follow through your lifetime…just like it did in mine.

'Nanba Arakkattalai. This means "FRIENDS'' board of trust. An individual trust that has set up various facilities for students studying in Puthukottai, Tamil Nadu. One of it is a library built for the students' to access. Since I have been liaising with them for a period of time, they requested me to teach students Art classes during my short visit to India. And indeed without much delay I had agreed to it. This is whatwhat I had been awaiting and it is my best time to teach those kids the skills that I have learnt and to see them draw with so much of interest and passion.
