Study tours and workshops are the creative window which provide the children with possible directions and creative outlets to have a greater understanding of their craft as well as discover their interests to be able to make a financially sustainable career in the arts.

STUDY TOURS

OUR TOURS

Moving out: Creativity Explored

Workshop on Installations, Sculpture and Mixed Media Art

 

Our current summer project

Moving out: Creativity Explored

Our effort is to offer the missing curriculum that children do not get in school. We are making children understand how best practices can make ideas happen. Our projects are guided by the principles of applying and teaching art and design thinking which will help make an impact in their local community. Our approach for the project involves research, ideation and development which will be followed by an Art Show.
 

Mapping your neighbourhood

Study Tour

Study Tour on Mental Mapping for 30 children was organised by Swati Janu, Creative Director at the social enterprise mHS CITY LAB. A mental map is a person's point-of-view perception of their area of interaction. Our children drew mental maps of their own neighbourhoods. 
The aim of the workshops was to develop the spatial perception and cognitive skills of the participants, through creative exercises based on recollection and retention. It began with a look at an ongoing exhibition of artist Priyanka Choudhary. Priyanka has used mental mapping with a community of Kashmiri refugees in the neighbourhood based on their recollection of their homes in Kashmir. 
The session concluded with tracing the participants’ mental maps on a real satellite map online, to enable them to use online mapping interfaces such as Google Maps.

Study Tour

Study Tour at Kiran Nadar Museum of Art.
Udaan organised a study tour for 30 children. It was conceptualised by Mrs Sanjana Sarkar, a former tour lead with Flow India. The children were given a detailed understanding of the eminent artists of India like M.F Hussain and S.H Raza to name a few. Children encountered a series of artworks which define the space/place paradox, putting it in the context of post independent India, moving steadily towards the modern day, contextualizing both the public and the private, the urban and the rural within the larger framework of experiences.

Paper Jewellery

Workshop

Udaan conducted a summer workshop of paper jewellery at Saksham Bal Vikas Sanstha. Children were thrilled with their new found creativity. They poured creative and fresh ideas for new designs. Paper is one of the most versatile materials for jewelry making. Children let their creativity flow when making these colorful bracelets, brooches, and necklaces.

A big thank you to Saksham School for this opportunity.

Workshop on Gender Equality by Flow India

Study Tour

Children of Udaan visited "Instituto Cervantes", an art exhibition and workshop on gender equality by Flowindia. Gender equality is achieved when women and men enjoy the same rights and opportunities across all sectors of society.
