We are delighted to share exciting news about a groundbreaking initiative that brings together the rich cultural heritage of Telangana and Jharkhand through a unique ‘ Art integration project’. In a collaborative effort, students of Gaudium, have seamlessly woven together economic, cultural, and social synergies, transcending boundaries and fostering a deep sense of unity in both states.
Students integrated mathematical concepts with cultural expressions by using traditional paintings to explore and measure angles. This approach makes mathematics come alive as students apply theoretical concepts to real-world, culturally relevant contexts.
Students researched tribal medicinal plants and their properties, showcasing traditional wisdom. Students have created art pieces paying tribute to freedom fighters from Telangana and Jharkhand. Using origami, they depicted national birds and animals while reinforcing geometry concepts. The integration explores abundant mineral resources and economic contributions. Students creatively depict the significance, emphasizing impact on state development.
Students have captured the essence of festivals in Telangana and Jharkhand through vibrant folk dances, expressive invitation cards, and artworks. The special ‘Chhau and Cheriyal masks’ play a significant role in these festivals, showcasing the cultural diversity and shared traditions that bind the two states.
Students have created a “bamboo orchestra” that uses different lengths of bamboo to produce diverse tones and frequencies. By experimenting with bamboo lengths, they have learned about the correlation between length, tension, and vibration, enhancing their understanding of scientific principles.
The initiative promotes artistic expression and strengthens bonds between Telangana and Jharkhand, fostering camaraderie among students to appreciate similarities and celebrate differences.
On 16th Dec 2023, we invited parents, students, and all stakeholders to witness the culmination of this inspiring ‘Art Integration Project ‘along with the ‘culmination of the student-led conference’ at The Gaudium school, where the students’ remarkable creations were showcased. It was indeed a visual feast that encapsulates the spirit of unity, diversity and shared heritage between Telangana and Jharkhand.
