Non Creative Meet 25 – Pot Painting

Author : Antony Jackson

The NC dream comes True!
 
It took two years for us to bring people outside Report Bee to be a part of our non/Naan Creative meet. This time, We worked along with Team Everest (NGO) to bring kids from Kottur High School. The Team NC helped the kids to do some crazy art in the pots.
 
 .
 
We decided to try Pot Painting and luckily the date stood on March 25th, The 25th NC meet/activity. The 3 hour session started at 10.00 in the morning and was over by lunch. Few kids were open and interactive while few took time to interact. Some preferred to remain calm and observant.

We expected the event to be fun and engaging. Instead, the kids enthralled us with their creativity and perfection. We, as a team, tried our hands on some pot painting before experimenting it with the kids.  When compared to what we did, the kids were way ahead of us.

To us, this activity brought much of joy as we got to interact with kids in our premises. They were free to take the pots they like and we have a couple of pots left with us.  As a token of love, We will be gifting these pots of love hope and joy to our guests!

 

Non Creative Meet 4 – Waste Materials Craft Work

Author : Daniel

NOTHING IS WASTE: BUT THE THOUGHT IS

Where fear fades, there life blooms.

Sure, fear creates a blocks in human’s life. my fears were at its peak

Why was I scared?

        Not once ,twice but thrice the non creative sessions have gone wonderfully and it is the fourth time and it is my turn , creativity. Technically, I’m conducting the 4th Non – Creative Meetup. I have to prove myself , my talent and creativity . But I don’t  know how . I had only one thought;  by not wasting their time I have to show them “Nothing is waste”.

Plan:

  1. Name: After giving  a deep thought into what I should name the whole concept , I named it

“Waste Material Craft Work “( I stole it from the internet !!!).

  1. I segregated the materials into two

The things I have to buy

The things that I have to collect from my home .

 At last I had a bag full of goodies. I patted myself saying well begun is half done.

  1. I carried my bag and started from my home to the venue, IIFL, 6th floor,  AMEEX OFFICE.

Event:

       26th June 2015 – it was a Friday evening, yes the moment has arrived, the moment I anticipated, the moment I rehearsed many times , the moment I was waiting for .It  was the occasion in which I have to prove that I am creative in a Non creative meet . Amidst all this tension , my girl friend advised (ordered)  me to dress properly and there is no escape from her word .I did that too. Numbers are flowing in my mind, and i realized that a big crowd is waiting to attend my Non creative activity especially on that day. Fear and joy was flourishing inside me.

       Everyone was gathered in the terrace, people took their own time to settle down, but once they got comfortable, everyone’s attention was towards Suganthi. She gave a brief introduction about NC and gave the stage to me I was nervous  and terrified , mouth was in silent mode and the body was in vibrant mode.

           At last I gathered  all the strength I can and opened, my laptop and started my presentation , as soon as the first slide appeared on screen the whole crowd burst out laughing .The slide was funny , I made sure that they laugh, so that I can start my presentation with a happy note . My mind voice said “People are happy. Start it”.

My Concept :

         My idea is very simple. Some of the things that would otherwise end up in the dustbin make great material for craft projects. Creating new thing out of waste is very satisfying, and the possibilities are almost endless.  So I have developed a habit of saving things.  I started making art especially “Name Board” out of recycled materials. My thoughts are here

Team Involvement:

120 mins passed still the activity continued, even the sun finished its job and left for its home and it was dark everywhere, but the involvement and the interest of the participants kept me going.

Nothing is a waste, when we give our thought and potential a form even waste materials can be transformed into masterpieces. Our NC members got hold of the thought and made amazing art works out of waste materials.

I got feedback about my Session from a new Bee.

Shanmugavadivel:

Non creative gives unique meaning in english and tamil. Thats crazy to watch all creative stuffs of Daniel for the first time. As It was my first NC meet i was on observing things happening around me.Then I started to do a name board with the help of Daniel. Colours and paint brushes remind me of my childhood memories. I was inspired and am waiting for next meetups.

At last, Without the Non Creative Team’s involvement, I would not have achieved this .

THANKS TO THE NON CREATIVE TEAM.

Non Creative Meet 3 – Glass painting and Shilpakar art

Author: Suganthi P

In my office, everyone is sure to be occupied in their work throughout the week. But On May 26, 2015, my whole team was eagerly waiting to learn some new art work. Usually it is  monotonous, but this time our two Craft Masters (Jaishri and dhivya who conducted the session) got us engaged in almost three activities like Glass Painting, shilpakar, Art using Ice cream sticks. First, Hearty thanks for the event and for letting us stay behind our creative work on that day. I am grateful for the reasonable time, and the extremely beneficial day of Our Non Creative Meet for Glass Painting. I have learnt and really understood my brushes and how they work. I feel confident, inspired to start exploring with painting…

Materials we used for the colorful activity :

Materials!
Materials!

Everyone had their hands over all three activities. It is very hard to put into words. Because everyone was amazing me with their painting and I am proud of what we achieved in the event. We were able to step out of our comfort zone and try new art that has greatly increased our confidence in glass painting.

My team:

The team!
The team!

Feedback from a person who was new on the board:

“It was such a brilliant time. I clearly understood the way they explained and so was interested to implement my creativity in glass painting. I was looking at each and everyone at the event and they surprised me with awesome talents. Everybody took the materials, implemented their mind and made those materials into innovative one. From my childhood, I have been very much interested in creative work, but I never thought that my work place itself will become a platform for it.”

Feedback from those who conducted the session:

This would have not have been possible without your interest. You guys are the reason behind the success. I have never heard of such activity in any office. All credit goes to Non Creative Team.

Our Colorful Outcome:

Here it is!
Here it is!

I hope that my team learnt three new craft works. Thanks for the mixup events and logistics you have planned for this event.

And here we are!
And here we are!
