Delhi Public School Dhaka (DPS STS) has recently arranged an art workshop for its primary students, enabling the future artistes to mingle with the workshop’s Chief Guest Hashem Khan, and learn from the legend. The workshop was held at the Junior Campus of DPS STS at the capital’s Uttara, where participating students from grade 3 and 4 could jot down painting tips and tricks, listen to the Ekushey Padak winner’s anecdotes, and gather great motivation that shall help them pursue their passion for arts and crafts.
Titled “Art Workshop – The Artful Touch”, the arrangement consisted of an exclusive session conducted by Hashem Khan. Students were found elated at the opportunity to play with colors in the company of the great artist, and their parents also appreciated the initiative. “Routine lifestyles can get mundane for children sometimes, hence we must look out for scopes to give them a break whenever we can”, said Rokhsana Marziya Rumi, parent of a grade 3 student. “And if that break comes with a joyful learning opportunity, there’s nothing like it! Children found exactly that opportunity today here at the art workshop. As a parent, I am thoroughly grateful to DPS STS and the Chief Guest Hashem Khan for the initiative”, he added.
“I have always believed that children have the highest capacity to express themselves through art, because their imaginations still remain genuine and raw, unbothered by any fixation. I enjoyed the opportunity to conduct the session at DPS STS. Thanks to the authority for the wonderful arrangement”, said Hashem Khan.
Besides the doodling with pen and papers, children rejoiced their time at the workshop with a unique kit provided by the school, consisting of a t-shirt, snacks and a certificate of participation.
