2.00 pm - 4.00 pm: Newspaper Bags CAN BECOME Gift Bags - Learn how!
This workshop will take you through the magic of converting mere newspapers first into bags and then into beautiful pieces of art - using different kinds of waste resources like soap wrappers, old invites, waster paper, your fantastic imagination and some paint! You will be surprised how 'arty' and environmentally friendly you can get. You will have a ready to use paper bag replacing plastic bags and thus making your 'ecoart print' to celebrate the World Environment Day. The workshop will be facilitated by Mrinalini Chawla from the Centre for Creative Expressions along with Kriti team members.

3rd June 2009
3.00 pm - 5.00 pm: Creating your environmental expressions with Music!
Trying to save the environment starts with truly responding to it with gratitude and sensitivity. If we can't, saving it becomes just a clinical exercise, no? So in this workshop, we start with music and our responses to it - and it is those feelings and ideas that we will try to put into art using newspaper, canvas, cardboard, fabric, paper, earthern materials etc - with paints, brushes and more! Come make your own 'ecoart print' to celebrate the World Environment Day! This workshop will provide you with materials and themes to share your creativity and thought on environment problems, solutions and actions!

The workshop will be facilitated by Mrinalini Chawla from the Centre for Creative Expressions and other artists with Kriti team members.
