- Interact With Art
Keeping in sync with the KNMA’s aim of making the museum space not just a repository of valuable works of art but also a space for convergence of ideas and thoughts, the museum organizes several stimulating and highly engaging workshops for children and adults. These participatory sessions are thought provoking and stir the imagination of the participants through quirky and exciting teaching methods. They also provide a channel to let them express their creative urges through their art pieces. KNMA upholds the belief that such museum visits and invigorating platforms should be the counterparts to school curriculum as they help shape the curious mind of the children in their formative years and instill a sense of wonder through these tangible workshops. For adults, these programs provide them an alternate way of thinking and understanding their surroundings which may be miles apart from the normalcy of everyday life. Through these sessions the participants also get to explore the museum space differently in context of the artworks on display.
Lets Play With Herve Tullet
22nd August 2012
The event, organized in collaboration with the German Book office & Embassy of France in India, was an exhilarating experience for the two hundred plus children from diverse schools in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh. Herve emphasized the potential of a non-verbal expression, by making children play with gestures, sounds and finally through creative mark making, liberating their creative urges as they drew out circles, zigzags, scribbles and sprinkled paint from the brush on long scrolls of white paper. The process was indeed more important than the product.
