A team of ten boys picked up natural colours, bamboo sticks and papers and designed 600 colourful greeting cards. Some painted landscapes while others worked on floral designs putting the best of their creative skills on the handmade papers.
At Omkar and Lion’s School for the Deaf and Dumb, the creative abilities of the young and special students leave one admiring their exhibits for a long time.
It took them almost a month to put their thoughts onto the sheets. Students who were part of the bamboo art training session too exhibited their creations at the expo.
Apart from the bamboo art session, the school also trains students in paper manufacturing using paper pulp. At the expo, students created greeting cards using manufactured papers.
Sky-lanterns, flower bouquets, soup bowls, hanger, shoe-stand, letter-folder, flower baskets, home-decors, fruits container, flower vases, bangle stand and other utility items are sure to attract one’s attention.
All the waste pieces of bamboo were reused to design greeting cards or key-chains, said the art masters of the school, R. Anjeneyulu and Sridevi.
“Students over here have varied interests. If they are not able to do well at studies, they can engage themselves with such vocational training and in the future they can make it their main profession too,” they explained.
Children have been showing keen interest in these artworks and a little bit of training and encouragement is what they need.
“These kind of exhibitions inspire them to work towards perfection in the future,” said secretary and correspondent of the school, M.N. Aditya. With the four-month training session concluding shortly, students are working on furniture designing.
The expo is on till Monday between 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
