Teachers take lessons in creative craft at Kundan International workshop
Creative craft workshop for teachers of Kundan International

Chandigarh, March 21: A workshop on creative craft organized here today for the faculty of Kundan International School, Sector 46 accosted the teachers with fresh ideas and concepts in teaching with focus upon creativity and innovation. The three hour long workshop on creative craft which was aimed at developing and honing creative skill sets amongst teachers for effective instruction was attended by over 15 teachers who took lessons in various craft activities like moulding, glass painting, finger painting and utility of modern teaching techniques. The workshop was organised in association with Pidilite.
The workshop emphasized upon enhancement of skills amongst teachers who are themselves supposed to instill a fresh and modern outlook amongst pupils. Teachers were imparted training in different techniques of clay moulding to make permanent articles( to be used later as teaching aides to create 3D stories), use of finger paints, powder colours, preparation of fabric puppets, printed handkerchiefs, cardboard crowns and glass painting.
As the young students are being increasingly exposed to such crafts and skills which can be best learnt only if the instructors are practically equipped to deal with nuances of these skills, it was envisaged to have a dedicated workshop for the teachers who are dealing with such subjects, remarked Ms Divya Bhatia, Principal, Kundan International School.
Teachers thoroughly enjoyed the 3 hour session which not only enabled them with different skill sets but also accorded an opportunity to display the learnt skills. Teachers made different animal forms and shapes from clay and other material and arranged them as bigger projects as part of practical exercise during the workshop.
