Round Square Student Committee

Discovery of Art

The Round Square Student Committee participated in a Virtual Collaboration hosted by Doon School, India over a course of 3 days (28th to 30th September 2020).

The collaboration “Discovery of Art” required students to pick a theme and discover their culture through the medium of art. Our students felt that the best way to portray the culture of Pakistan would be through our vibrant and colourful Truck Art and hence selected that theme.

Students from the RSSC painted individual pieces, compiled an animation and created a video based on Truck Art and the culture of Pakistan.

They presented their work online through Zoom to over 150 participants from the South East Asia & Gulf region. They did a great job and the biggest achievement was that we received private messages from other RS reps who greatly enjoyed our presentation.

Please find all the documents attached (presentation, event brochure, animation and video).
