Art & Craft Exhibition

The Art and Craft Exhibition, which is a biennial feature at South Point, was held in the school premises from January 16 to 18, 2020. Prior to this, in order to facilitate the arrangements for the exhibition, classes for Nursery I to Class I were suspended from January 13 to 15, 2020, Classes II & III were suspended on January 14 & 15, 2020 and Classes IV & V were suspended on January 15, 2020.

The renowned painter, Shri Wasim Kapoor was the Chief Guest for the Art and Craft Exhibition. On the day of the inauguration, some students of South Point School, as well as, South Point High School, sang the opening song followed by the school song. This was followed by the welcome address by Smt Rupa Sanyal Bhattacharjee, Principal, South Point High School. Thereafter, the Chief Guest addressed the gathering, lit the ceremonial lamp, cut the ribbon and inaugurated the exhibition.

Numerous art and craft exhibits were on display. The exhibition showcased the creative potential of the budding artists of the school, ranging from Nursery I to Class XII. There were drawings in poster colour, acrylic colour, water colour and pastel colour. There were craft items like terracotta plates and vases, wall hangings, lamp shades, plant holders, masks, pencil holders, photo frames, key rings and dolls to name a few. The exhibition included more than three thousand paintings. The innovative craftsmanship, intricate designing and the novel creative ideas in art work enthralled one and all. Many of the art and craft items on display were made out of recycled waste material.

About one hundred and twenty five pupils of Classes II to V, under the guidance of Art Teachers, made various articles by rolling newspaper and coloured chart paper, created murals on mount board using the art of quilling, painted and decorated earthen vases with jute ropes and other embellishments at art workshops held in the months of November and December 2019. At these workshops they were also engaged in block printing on pastel paper and cloth using cut vegetables as stencils. They were also involved in collage-making on mount board. All art work created in the workshops were on display.

The Nursery Department was all set to charm the visitors with a radiant display of colourful blossoms, bees, butterflies and birds, magical castles, pretty princesses and a plethora of Disney characters as ‘Garden’ and ‘Disneyland’ were the themes they worked on. Students of Classes I to V had also worked on theme projects. The topics were:

Class I Secrets of the Sea
Class II My Clean World
Class II My Clean World
Class III Let the Earth Breathe
Class IV Stopping by the Woods
Class V Aqua Vitae – Water of Life, Let’s be Water-wise

The rooms displaying these projects created a green corridor for the visitors as the aim was to create awareness regarding the urgent need to save our environment and our planet. Colourful charts and models were exhibited and some students were selected as live models and demonstrators. Drawings by the students of the KMCP School, Hazra Road, adopted by South Point and of Sandipan, the free evening school run by South Point Foundation were exhibited. A very special attraction was the corner where costume jewellery made by the children of Sandipan were on display and for sale. On January 17, 2020 children of the KMCP School and of Sandipan came to see the exhibition.

Children of the Co-Curricular Activity Department staged various performances in the courtyard; this added to the festive ambience of the occasion.

The exhibition was open to visitors from 12 noon to 5.30 pm on all three days. Over five thousand visitors came to see the exhibition.
