Independence Day Art Competition

To celebrate the Independence Day, Al Qamar Lower Elementary had an art competition where children had to draw their idea of "My India."

I thought the topic would be difficult for the 2nd and 3rd graders - how do you translate an idea of India and what it means to you into a drawing?

But the children really came up with wonderful stuff.

The winner was a lovely piece of work titled "Great Indian People Tree."

The 2nd place went to another thoughtful piece contrasting old and new India - from a child's view. The old was green and blue, and even had a lion! The new - a modern house, with a smokestack next to it.

The 3rd place went to a drawing of a forest with a road running through it.

I was zapped at the perceptiveness and deep thinking of these young 3rd grade children who could then render their ideas into concrete drawings.
