On November 17 2021, a drawing masterclass was held in Osh, with a total of 40 schoolchildren aged 13 to 17 years participated.
Drawing theme: The world through my eyes.
Coach: Samikulova Ayturgan
This drawing masterclass in Osh provided a platform for exploration and reflection on important societal issues, raising awareness of the need to protect our planet, combat discrimination, appreciate the beauty of landscapes, and prioritize ecological conservation.
A noticeable trend in the drawings was the predominant use of blue and yellow colors. Blue, associated with the sky and water, had a calming effect on the human psyche. On the other hand, yellow evoked feelings of warmth and positivity, akin to the sun. It was apparent that those who preferred yellow were imbued with hope and optimism. Notably, black and gray were used sparingly and were associated with negative emotions.
The artworks presented a diverse range of interpretations and perspectives on the topics. Some depicted images that immediately came to mind, indicating spontaneous creativity. As these participants further develop their artistic skills, their ability to express and communicate their thoughts will continue to grow.
Four key themes emerged from the drawing masterclass:
- The future of our planet (what it will look like if you don’t take care of it).
