Art Exhibition at Fatima Jinnah School


An exhibition of student art and handicrafts was held in the lovely Fatima Jinnah art room. The sparkling display included beautiful finger puppets, envelopes, cards, pottery, jewellery boxes, pencil holders, paper baskets, bamboo work, picture frames, tile paintings and glass paintings – all created by the students from Class 1 to Class 8.


Parents were invited to the exhibition and they were delighted to see the wonderful art and crafts made by their children. This exhibition gave them a direct look at what their children were learning outside the classroom helped them appreciate first-hand the value of a well-rounded education.


Art classes were started by Zindagi Trust for students from Classes 1 through 8 at the government school in 2009, when one of the large unused storage rooms was converted to an art room with big tables for shared studio work. The room is a happy retreat for many students who yearn for more than just the one art class their schedule allows.


The art teachers – who are part of the Zindagi Trust team – have put in hard work to make their students enjoy and excel in art. Muqaddas Batool won the International Art Olympiad a couple of years back to put government schools on the local art map, but this exhibition was the first time many more budding artists got a wider audience. Most students said they enjoyed learning how to create these knick-knacks and handicrafts and were excited to have their parents see their work. Rabia, a student from Class 7 said: “I’m glad I got the opportunity to create these pieces. The exhibition we put up was beautiful – my parents loved it!”
