The Power of Art by Katharina Kakkar, Tara Trust
Time All Day
The workshops dealt with the power of movement, touch, colour and shape, and the power of music to prepare the children to experience the relationship between their emotions and the creative outcome.
A group of eight to ten children in the age group of 10 and above, including two blind children, selected by the Tara Trust worked together in three phases to create this large abstract work of art. The goal was to introduce the children to art with a fresh perspective. This new way of experiencing art and accessing it included exercises that touched upon all the senses. Experiences of power and vulnerability—a subject all children have been exposed to in their lives—was the guiding theme to relate to the exercises.
