Artistic beginnings
Whilst most people would not like to see art through the eyes of a six or seven year old,the students of the Asher’s Art Corner sure had both,their parents as well as the teachers were awe-struck when it came to answering questions about art,at the Art Quiz held at the Corner’s premises on Sunday. Speaking about the event,Vanita Narain Das,the event manager who doubled up as Vanny the friendly witch,says,“The students were divided into two age groups,5-8 and 9-11 and they were quizzed on their knowledge about basic art forms,types of colours,ways to achieve primary and secondary colours and the differences between them.” The students of the senior age group however had a tougher round of questions like talking about renaissance art,various types of colours,pastels,and differences between various styles of paintings. Speaking about the quiz,Rashmi Jain,one of the kids in the senior group says,“The quiz is a wonderful way for us to improve our knowledge about art. I had a wonderful time participating in it and also I am glad to have won some prizes too. I hope to participate in such quizzes in the future too.” While Picasso and Rembrandt might still be a long way away for these kids they have sure found the right path to tread upon.

Pouring on
If alternative rock is your forte and you idolise Bruce Springsteen and Eric Clapton,then Poured on Ice,the Delhi-based alternative rock band would definitely set your frayed nerves to rest. The band performed at Not Just Jazz By The Bay on Tuesday. Speaking more about the band,lead vocalist and senior band member Rushabh Shearon says,“Our band basically loves to experiment with new sounds and tones. In fact we even write different riffs and melodies depending upon our moods.” Elaborating,he says,“Inspirations for the band range from Eric Clapton,Bruce Springsteen U2,Red Hot Chili Peppers,Blink 182 and so on. Every band member looks upto different singers from around the world to inspire them. Our music,however,does not incorporate elements of hard rock,thrash metal and the rest. There are no heavy elements in our music. For us,music is all about being ourselves .” On a concluding note,he says,“We have five members in our band,including a girl who is our drummer. We have Varun Iyer and Ishaan Yadav on guitars,S Varun on bass guitars,Divya Sood on drums and myself on the vocals. We believe our music lets people unwind and chill out and just as our name suggests Poured on Ice is exactly the type of music that we play.”
