Teaching Ikebana to Children at School
Hyderabad chapter, with a mission to spread Ikebana far and wide is approaching different schools to demonstrate this beautiful art before the children. we believe that this attempt would bring students closer to the nature and enhance their creativity. Schools have noticed that this art helped in increasing student’s concentration level making them more focused and attentive to hone their artistic sensibilities and aesthetic principles of design. As expressed by one of the Ikebana demonstrators at school, “the children have shown great interest towards the art form. They were surprised to see how beautifully the floral arrangements were done in cup and saucers and with simple utility items, with a clear sense of understanding of various colour combinations. They observed and noted down the rules of the arrangements with amazing precision and enthusiastically replied when checked on their level of attention. It was a richly rewarding experience and I was elated to see the young, sharp minds getting involved in trying to grasp the fine nuances of this beautiful Zen floral art. Teaching the young minds was quite a learning experience and sharing this humble art of Ikebana with Gen next was most enriching of them all”.
