This Lab also marks a significant shift from the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) approaches which are prevalent in the education system to a STEAM based approach which integrates art, science and technology together. This lab will enable the teachers to use artistic skills, visual thinking, and scientific learning and thinking which will enrich their classroom teaching and personal practice. Apart from this, the experience of integration will help the teachers and students to better reflect on their own practices, material choices and outcomes.

Partner a Master: Artist-Mentor Program

Morning Session: 10.00 am – 1.00 pm :: Afternoon Session: 2.00 pm – 5.00 pm

Partner a Master: Artist-Mentor Program is an initiative that fosters the notion of creativity as applied imagination for children in private and public schools.

Employing art as a pedagogical tool, this initiative emphasizes on visual literacy, collective learning, and the role of the arts in cognitive and creative competencies. In this lab, teachers will be introduced to the way artists work in studios and public spaces by interacting directly with contemporary national and international artists. Artists will directly speak to teachers about their creative processes and methods, in the spirit of the lab transforming into an artists’s studio. Hands-on exercises, analysis and discussion based on a seminal project of the artists will be done, with teachers producing ideas and artworks that they can implement in their schools with their students.

This lab will be divided into two parts: in the first two days, teachers will interact with two contemporary Indian artists each day who will mentor them on visual thinking and process-based learning.

On the third day, teachers will e-interact with Elke Zobl, an associate professor at the University of Salzburg through a webinar. She focuses on artistic, cultural and media practices in respect to questions of participation, community engagement and cultural mediation. Through a day long participation, she will introduce the teachers to the toolbox Making Art, Making Media, Making Change!
