Art Exhibition at Khatoon-e-Pakistan School
Date: 7/2/2016

The teachers and students of Khatoon-e-Pakistan Government Girls School put up their first Art and Science Exhibition which was well-attended by parents, outside students and the larger community. 

Thanks to Head of Arts Program Ms Anam Shakil Khan, Primary School Teacher Ms Shahida and volunteer Nuur Diana from Indonesia, the school was able to put up a great show in a short time. The exhibition featured the work of students from Classes 1 to 10, with a variety of different mediums, paintings, drawings, buntings / sticker art, masks, silhouette drawings, perspectives, contour drawings, colour beams, etc. on display.
Our students' parents were really surprised to see what their kids can do! It was great to see hidden talent emerge such as the work of Munazza, a Science student in Class 10, where art is currently not taught. 
Visitors, ranging from parents,  siblings of our students, the principal of the neighbouring college, students and teachers from neighbouring schools and colleges, were amazed by the quality of the work on display and we were pleased to see that some of them expressed their interest in being involved in some way.
This exhibition also enabled a healthy exchange between teachers of different fields who do not normally interact about their work. In the words of Science Teacher Ms Shazia Aziz, the rare opportunity to enjoy an attractive display of art was a feast for her mind. Our art team was pleased to see their fellow science teachers appreciating the value of art education and will be working on integrating science (as well as history or math where relevant) into some of our art classes.
We would specially like to mention the hard work of Ms Shahida Ghafoor, a primary school art teacher who stayed after school for several days to prepare for the exhibition and also got some wonderful work done by her students. Head of the Arts Program, Ms Anam Shakil Khan, has been coaching and training her and we are happy to see that has been keen to learn and grow in both technical skills and confidence. We hope to have two more government teachers trained by Ms Khan in the following term to support the art program as the student body grows.
"A dream come true, three months into the launch of the art program," is how the exhibition was described by Anam Shakil Khan, who heads the program.
"I appreciate how this creates a spirit of healthy competition among the students. I will cherish the memory of my visit to the exhibition!" added Ms Shazia.
