Eco Ganesha Workshop 29th August
August 29, 2010 Leave a comment
Attended by a crowd of more than 60, the workshop was yet another successful event which saw more than 25 idols being made by freshies and seniors alike. The objective of the event – to celebrate ganesh chaturthi in a green way – was achieved through participation from almost all the hostels which will now use the idols made today for celebration rather than the conventional idol which are a hazard to the water bodies.
Thanks to Vidya-Mumbai for helping us out with the conduct of the workshop. Workshop was taken by Mr. Amar and Mrs. Ashwini from the NGO who have conducted numerous such workshops. Students were first taught how to model the idols out of clay in detail and then painting and decoration of idols with natural colours was demonstrated and colors distributed for painting the idol later on.
Kudos to all the Hostel Photography and Fine Arts Secretary for making the event so successful. Some people who came to see the event actually remarked that just from plain poster publicity, so many people on a weekend afternoon turned up. This was owing to the awareness created in each hostel about the event through a small presentation circulated through hostel mailing lists so that everybody knew what exactly is going to happen.
