Splash of colors at ILOA

Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

Thurs­day 5 Novem­ber 2015 was not just an­other work­ing day at the In­dian Learn­ers Own Acad­emy Kuwait (ILOA Kuwait), but it was a school day with a very pleas­ant, color­ful twist to it.

As more than 200 stu­dents as­sem­bled in the school au­di­to­rium un­der the guidance of LOA’s dy­namic and bril­liant Prin­ci­pal, Asha Sharma, LOA Art teacher and in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed world art spe­cial­ist Sasikr­ish­nan, in the pres­ence of Suhail, the Mar­ket­ing Man­ager of Faber-Castell, the scene was set for an ac­tive par­tic­i­pa­tion by the stu­dents in an art work­shop held un­der the pa­tron­age of Faber-Castell, world lead­ers in the man­u­fac­ture of art sup­plies, pens, pen­cils, high-end writ­ing in­stru­ments, lux­ury leather goods and of­fice sup­plies.

Asha Sharma, in­au­gu­rated the Work­shop and what fol­lowed were a few hours of sheer cre­ative in­dul­gence, learn­ing and fun us­ing Faber-Castell Con­nec­tor Pens un­der the guidance of Artist Sasikr­ish­nan who ex­plained the dif­fer­ent tech­niques of draw­ing us­ing Con­nec­tor Pens. Through an in­ter­ac­tive ses­sion, the art mae­stro not only ed­u­cated the lit­tle artists in the art of cre­at­ing artis­tic mas­ter­pieces but also ex­plained the im­por­tance of art ed­u­ca­tion as a tool to re­move fear in chil­dren and in­still con­fi­dence in them. He shed light on var­i­ous art tech­niques through which con­cen­tra­tion and fo­cus­ing abil­ity can be im­proved in young­sters, in or­der to en­hance their aca­demic per­for­mance. Within the short span of the Work­shop the Mas­ter shared price­less knowl­edge gained through more than two decades lived as an artist and art ed­u­ca­tor who has trav­elled all over the globe as an art spokesper­son at var­i­ous vis­tas.

So­hail, in­tro­duced to the stu­dents and teach­ers, the dif­fer­ent prod­ucts of Faber-Castell that can be used for doo­dling, squig­gling, draw­ing etc. The work­shop wound up with a ques­tion and an­swer ses­sion for the stu­dents and win­ners were re­warded with gifts spon­sored by Faber-Castell.
