Handicraft Club

“Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.” – Mary Lou Cook

Art can stimulate thought and reason. That is why it is known to have brought a revolution in many cultures.

Lipan art is a traditional mural craft of Kutch, Gujarat, India. Lippan or mud-washing using materials locally available in the region like a mixture of clay and camel dung keeps the interiors of the houses cool.

The students of the Handicraft club gathered in the Art room. Post attendance, the instructions for the Lippan art were given. Students were sharing where and what kind of lippan art they saw. The motifs and designs used in lippan kaam are inspired by everyday life. Students used clay, glue, mirrors, and paints.

Post-break they were a joy to see their work turning into art. The use of mirrors in this art form produces an astonishing, glittering effect, where a simple lamp can light up a very large space. Students were engrossed to give an artistic end to the work.

All the students thoroughly enjoyed this activity and worked with great enthusiasm. It was a joyful experience for the teachers to see their student’s artwork. Students did it marvelous art work.
