The Mango Tree Art School begins on 13th June 2011
  A little more about the Mango Tree After School Art Program The Mango Tree after school art program is a fantastic place for children to enjoy exciting art activities, to experiment with a variety of art materials, and to express their ideas! At Mango Tree, we teach a spiral curriculum to help our students grow into fluent, proficient artists. Teaching a spiral curriculum means that each term, our students learn about art concepts, materials, and skills. In subsequent terms, we choose projects which build on the learning that came in the terms before. Each term our students work with a variety of media including; drawing, painting, collage, printmaking, sculpture, performance art, and more. Students use these art forms to explore their ideas about a relevant theme. Our first term’s theme is, Our Environment, which will include the topics of Home, Goa Recreation, Villages and Cities, and Ecosystems. Students will make paintings, sculptures and prints all while expressing their ideas about their world and learning about established artists. At mango Tree, we teach our students to be innovative thinkers by valuing their ideas and contributions. We also teach our students a respect for tradition as we learn about artists and art history. At Mango Tree our approach teaches our students to value their own ideas and to appreciate the perspectives of others. This gives our students the tools to work confidently and effectively whether they are working independently or with a group. At Mango Tree students and teachers work together to think beyond limits and to be creative leaders.   -          Leslie Lakhia (Co-ordinator, Mango Tree School) Art Educator, Teacher Educator, Curriculum Developer

'Strangers' - a photography exhibition by Nolan Mascarenhas at Cafe Al Fresco gallery - 20 Feb to 5 Mar, 10 am to 7 pm
Sunaparanta - Goa Centre for the Arts invites you to 'Strangers'  - a photography exhibition by Nolan Mascarenhas at the Cafe Al Fresco Gallery at Sunaparanta from the 20th of February to the 5th of March 2011 from 10 am to 7 pm.   Artist Statement   It is difficult to determine when I decided to pursue art, I doubt it was ever a conscious decision, it always seemed like a part of me, an organ like any other. My personality was uninhibited by the opinions of others and this naturally translated in my art as well. With perfect 20 - 20 vision, it was puzzling how the world still seemed clearer and more beautiful through the lens of a camera. As a passionate child unaware of the intricacies of lenses and complex camera equipment, it took little for me to pursue my interest. After schooling in Goa at Sharada Mandir, I pursued my passion by joining the Photography Club at the Symbiosis College in Pune. Determined that the adjective 'dull' would never describe me, I adorned many masks - an avid film collector, an animal lover actively involved with various social causes, a vintage motorcycle restorer and a photographer with a penchant for all things antique.   By day I work in a MNC situated in the bustling streets of Mumbai. By night I pursue my Masters from Mumbai’s prestigious Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies. However, solace for me is always behind the lens, I am a dreamer who is always looking for his next creative fix. I have always endeavored to advance confidently in the direction of my dreams and the courage it took, booked me my first exhibition at the Art Chamber in Goa.  The exhibition was titled The Mystical Dragon and showcased pictures I had taken on a trip to China, reflecting the commonalities I observed between Chinese and Indian culture, art & heritage.   Having successfully completed my first exhibition my confidence blossomed and I entered my work to the Art Loft situated in Mumbai, where some of it was selected among hundreds of entries. Most recently I had the honour of having some of my work shortlisted by Ms. Kiran Rao to be displayed amongst some of the most accomplished photographers in Mumbai as part of her film - Dhobi Ghat's Photography Exhibition at PVR, which captured the many hues of the city of Mumbai. Though these accolades bring a smile to my face, I endeavour to stay true to my art , in the hope that one day it may bring a smile to your face as well.   To see more of my work visit: www.flickr.com/photos/nolanseye
