Purathur (Malappuram): Seema teacher asked her students to draw pictures to get rid of boredom during the online learning era. Twelve students of Buds School in Purathur Panchayath started painting by forgetting all their limitations. First-time artists also gave life to beautiful paintings.
Nature, instruments, hopes and everything was metamorphosed into beautiful combinations of colours. The idea of conducting an online exhibition came when the number of pictures crossed hundred. Pertaining to the current Covid situation, both exhibition and sale was conducted online.
The online exhibition was organised by Purathur Panchayath and an organisation named ‘Gifted Children and You.’ The event was named ‘Nirakoottu 2021’. It was an added happiness that many people came forward to buy the paintings. The company, Blue Yonder purchased the paintings for Rs 30,000 and the ones who attended the online programme competed to own the paintings.
Apart from brushes, fingerprints, feet, forks, buds and scrubbers were used as instruments for painting. Teacher Seema said that art has helped the differently-abled students in skill development.
Dr. K T Jaleel MLA who inaugurated the event promised to distribute smartphones for the students to attend online classes. CO Sreenivasan presided over the event. Kerala Social Security Mission co-ordinator Sureshan Puthiyedath, Premkumar Muthirassery, Joshi Perambra, Radhamani Ayankalam, V Rekha, M Seema, and Reena spoke during the event.
