“Collage is like a hall of mirrors. Everywhere you look, you see something different and visually stimulating.”
Collage is a technique where the artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole. It helps the students to develop their reasoning, creativity, imagination and problem-solving skills. This art not only enhances their motor skills but also hand and eye coordination. To foster these skills an Intra Section Collage Making Competition ‘Glimpses of Haryana and Telangana ‘ was organized for our young Dipsites on August 17, 2022, Wednesday. Students were provided an A3 size sheet on which they created alluring collages by pasting cutouts of pictures on their chosen topic about the two states viz. Haryana and Telangana like food, attire, flora – fauna, monuments, festivals, dance, handicraft or tourist destination. They bought cuttings from old magazines, newspapers etc. They drew a border on the sheet provided and arranged the pictures in their own unique style and designed appealing collages. They also wrote a beautiful quote related to the topic. This activity not only helped them express their imagination through this amazing art form but also enhanced their knowledge about the cultural heritage of the two states. The students enjoyed the activity as it gave them an opportunity to learn something new. It was a great learning experience for our young Dipsites. The students were applauded for their excellent efforts with badges and certificates.
