Club Gready: On the Green – August 2020

Storytelling

Aunty Jo regaled her listeners, drawing on traditional tales from Karnataka and Bundelkhand. There was a super fun and super competitive quiz too, and the participants amazed us with their general knowledge on everything to do with India.

Art Workshop

Savio Mascarenhas, Art Director of Amar Chitra Katha and Tinkle Studios, conducted a fantastic and entertaining workshop. He led the children (and some adults) step by step as everyone drew beloved Tinkle characters Suppandi, Shikari Shambhu, and Tantri the Mantri. The participants were so engrossed that the workshop could have lasted for another hour at least!

Book Club

The theme for ReaDD Book Club was Non-Fiction. Every child who participated spoke about non-fiction books they had read and loved lately. It was a lively and very informative session and lots of notes on good books were exchanged with great energy.

On The Green Update (01-Mar-2020)

Cosy Nook Library’s Art On The Green was a super fun event!

There were enthusiastic children of all ages who participated. Adrija Ghosh, a young and an extremely talented and enthusiastic illustrator took the children on a lovely journey of how picture books are made. Each child then was guided to make their own picture book.
