Nine students of Sadeeqa’s Learning System (SLS) Montessori and High School won the prize of attending the Nukta Art Workshop in this year’s Art Beat – The Little Art’s National Child Art Competition, says a press release.
Out of over 2500 entries, Sarah Jabeen and M. Wasif from the SLS, Gulraiz campus, M. Yousaf, Khadija Imran and Unzila Muskaan Qamar from the SLS, Peshawar Road campus, Farheen Noor and Sarah Khan from the SLS, Lalkurti campus, Shammas Nasir from the SLS, Harley Street campus and Tashif Wali from the SLS, Westridge campus won the art workshop along with forty-five other students from Rawalpindi and Islamabad. Sarah Khan from grade 7, SLS, Lalkurti campus was selected for the second time in a row to attend the art workshop, winning it last year as well.
The one week art workshop was held under the guidance of Sajjad Akram, Artist and Assistant Professor at the National College of Arts, Rawalpindi.
The students started with sketching and later learnt to shift their work on different mediums. They brought their favorite toys and were taught pencil sketching, later shifting their drawings on to a canvas with oil paints. They used coloured papers to make origami art all the while playing fun games and making new friends. Sculpturing from dough had students making scenes from the city or their favorite buildings.
Managing Director, SLS Schools, Asiya Talha congratulated her students and appreciated the wonderful new art skills they had acquired.
