Pak Shamaa School has held a virtual art competition this month.
"Pak Shamaa School is persistently engaged in progressing the aptitude of the students. In spite of the Covid-19 circumstances, the school arranged distinctive activities to improve imagination abilities in students," the school said in a statement.
The competition was held under the supervision of Haseena Sharif, Shawal and Rabiya Ali.
Taking part in drawing and colouring competitions makes a difference to students and helps them develop the correct state of mind towards having a career as an artist. It encourages them to challenge themselves and move out of their comfort zones.
"Students learn to think of art competitions as something that involves more than just winning or losing; they learn to appreciate the experience and move on to become better and stronger artists," the statement noted. "Consistent learning and self-motivation are the key to success as an artist and these competitions offer assistance in instilling these propensities in students."
Students were given distinctive themes such as reusing plastic bottles to make a vase, making hanging objects from papers used on a daily basis, and making various depictions on canvas by utilising paint and clay, among other creations.
Students displayed their craftsmanship online and were appreciated with certificates at the end of the competition. School principal Nabila Kaukab acknowledged the efforts of the students, their guardians and instructors to ensure the success of the initiative.
