Addressing the Inner Child Artist – NHAF

Addressing the Inner Child Artist – NHAF

A talk about honing artistic skills in all children who are succumbed to loose their creativity as soon as they approach 10yrs+.
NHAF-Educating art amongst children.

In my career as a fine artist, I often remember my school days, where I had a great yearning to know about art , its techniques and expressions .But, most of prevailing art practices were all bookish and banal, esp. When it came to the child’s art education. This is when I realise, there is a big lapse for a passionate art-loving child to hone his artistic skills.

Screen Shot 2016-04-02 at 12.43.40 pm
Art education till date amongst all children is nothing more than making a copy of any given drawing or paintings with no creative boosters given to a child. Resulting: A child looses his artistic abilities as soon as he or she reaches 10yrs +. (Taken from statistics records study of NHAF – Sir J.J.school annual Inter school art events over the period of a decade.) (For more information :- http://www.nhaf.in/nhaf-art-talks/5-things-we-do-to-kill-a-creative-child/ )
This incident further laid NHAF art foundation stepped towards breaching the old clichéd practices of imparting art education amongst all children, and providing them with an accomplished form of practicing art which focus on addressing the child’s inner artist.

NHAF withstands: –

• Every Child is a born Artist. He expresses his feelings beautifully in all his drawings.
• Art education leads to whole development of brain. LEFT + RIGHT BRAIN.
• THIS MAKES ART EQUALLY IMP. LIKE SCIENCE AND MATH.
ART = SCIENCE = MATH
• Art and Artist both are born in nature and hence art should be introduced beyond the spaces of four walls.
• True Art practice makes a child happy, creative, balanced and confident. These all ingredients are needed for 100% growth of a child.

NHAF in shaping of a child Artist: –

“ Every child is a born artist, and now will remain one, forever.”,  NHAF awarded team is in continuous efforts of developing art workshops, to nurture young creative brains giving them enough food to satisfy their creative skills. This includes the authentic fundamental art knowledge in following subjects and techniques: –
* Sketching * Water Colours  * Pen and Ink * Installations * Various Textures etc.

Screen shot 2015-07-02 at 11.14.49 PM

( Pioneers of Art in outdoors)

With an introduction to these techniques and many such others in the very formative years  (children as young as 5 yrs+) has lead to child’s creative imagination to a new level. NHAF workshops, currently ongoing in one of the schools of Mumbai, The CAJC Infant School, have marked a phenomenal spurge in a child’s creativity levels over the period of short time.

Artist Expression :- “I’d never realise Arts true miracle ,until while working on a cause, I noticed that practicing art has really boosted the morals of severely affected cancer children. These kids were able to smile even after their chemotherapy.” – Niki Hingad, Founder NHAF.

NHAF 5th Annual Inter School Art Event’2016

Always Color Outside the Lines

“I now reach for the colors I’ve never tried.

And Splash violet, melon, and chartreuse

all over my work.

Splatter it on the floor,

if the spirit so moves …

For now is the time to embrace my creativity,

And break all the rules.

In whatever I do,

I now, not worry about staying inside the lines…”

Nhaf Artist’s Workshop

I love to paint the sky RED,
And draw the EARTH, not round but SQUARE.
I love to draw some THICK THIN lines,
And dash them with some doodling STRIKES.
I express what I see in my own way,
And say it in the limitless way.
I am the actor ,director, writer and a STORY TELLER,
I am everything what I want….
I am an ………. ARTIST.
