Remember To Play

Swiss child psychologist Dr. Jean Piaget said — “Play is the work of childhood.”

Bangalore’s multi-ethnic community, Palm Meadows seemed to be sending everyone a message on Children’s Day through art: Remember to play.

At a time when there seems to be a rush for little children to grow up quickly, study hard, be the best at what they do, choose an interest and excel at it, it’s important that children be allowed to be children and stay carefree for as long as possible and just have fun. Responsibilities can wait. Right? The answer : Art.

All Work And No Play?

Art is a motivational and enjoyable experience that draws focus away from daily concerns and takes us on a journey of self-expression. It helps us to relive fond memories and foster our own creative processes.

So, children living in Palm Meadows painted a colorful 10 feet X 40 feet mural to celebrate Children’s Day on Sunday, 19 November 2017. Artist Soman Patnaik designed the initial mural background and tree outline which the participants painted around. The day’s programs were hosted by Everything In Events, a local event management company.

Children’s Day Mural Art Project

With Cinnabon and Auntie Anne’s Pretzel stalls, fruit juice, and other finger food being offered, everyone appeared to be having a ball as cheery tunes played on a loudspeaker.
Sunday’s mural project had hundreds of my neighbours who engaged with their old friends and said hello to new ones while watching and painting alongside kids. It made a difference. It was incredible because not only were we beautifying the community we live in but we came closer together with each other.

I’m Done With Adulting

Watching the mural painting in progress, the smiles of both kids and adults were heart-warming.

I am so sure the kids will remember the mark they left on this space when they see the mural year after year. I know I will. All in all it was a memorable, fun and artistic engagement. Now, let’s all keep the child inside us alive, shall we?
