A Symphony of Colours: Reflecting on the ‘Colourful Connects’ Workshop at Ekya Nava

A palette of creativity, innovation, and shared experiences unfolded at the Museum of Art and Photography (MAP) this weekend, as Ekya Nava, India’s first K-12 School of Innovation, Creativity, and Design, hosted the much-anticipated ‘Colourful Connects’ workshop. The event, aimed at children aged 3-8 and their parents, promised a day of imaginative exploration and delivered just that, wrapped in hues of joy and togetherness.

As the first rays of sunlight filtered through the museum windows, eager families gathered, ready to dive into the world of design and creativity. The workshop centered around the hands-on art of printmaking, not only introduced the little ones to the tactile pleasure of creating but also offered a unique platform for parents and children to bond over the shared joy of artistic creation.

The event commenced at 10:30 AM, with participants donning old t-shirts, ready to be splattered with the vibrant colours of their imagination. The atmosphere was electric with anticipation, as families embarked on a journey through the intricacies of printmaking. Under the expert guidance of seasoned artists and educators from Ekya Nava, the workshop transcended mere activity, becoming a vibrant testament to the school’s ethos of active, engaging learning.

What set ‘Colourful Connects’ apart was not just the opportunity for artistic expression, but also the complimentary day pass to the MAP, encouraging attendees to explore the rich tapestry of art and culture. The event, thereby, did not conclude with the end of the workshop but opened the doors to continued exploration and inspiration.

As the session drew to a close at 12:30 PM, the air was thick with a sense of accomplishment and newfound connections – between parents and children, between creativity and education, and between the past and the future of art. The workshop fulfilled its promise of a colourful day and sowed the seeds for a brighter, more creative tomorrow.
