Collage Workshop at ASSI Orphanage

This project was also undertaken under our education drive initiative. We collaborated with renowned artist Dr. Arun Kumar Mazumdar who has been a very ardent supporter of our organization, for this project. On 19th of July, 2015 we organized this workshop at Asian Sahyogi Sanstha India’s orphanage, Kestopur near Dum Dum, Kolkata. Through this project we have tried to provide a platform for the kids to learn a new art form. Though collage is not something new, the art form is not fully understood. The essentials of a good collage have always remained somewhat a mystery, undeniably creating fear amidst kids that collage creation is too tough. So Dr. Mazumdar with his expertise in this particular field was able de classify this mystery and was able to show our young friends a fun approach to collage. We tried to incorporate a bit of seriousness as well as a bit of fun in this project and we were quite surprised to see the balance between the two being exhibited by the kids. With this project we flagged of our Collage workshop program. *Apart from conducting the workshop we distributed drawing materials among the 16 kids at the orphanage. Just a thought: “Art can transform lives for the better”
