HOPE School Students' Visit to IVS!

Art has always been incorporated as a learning subject in the school’s curricula. Art has the ability to open one’s mind and inquire about the world. It has been used as a power to express one’s thoughts, feelings and emotions about what one thinks.
Keeping that in mind, the children studying at HOPE Formal School Karachi were taken to Indus Valley school of Art and Architecture as part of their field trip, so that they can have better insights about the art which was created by the talented students of the Art School.
An exhibition of limited edition Hollywood Movies Collectibles, “The Stuff Dreams Are Made of, 2013” was set up for display. The children and the faculty of HOPE School also visited the media printing & sculpture department which served as a golden opportunity for these underprivileged children to learn new things and sharpen up their artistic abilities. Moreover, different sculptures were shown which left the children in a state of awe. The children were eager to learn from the artists and some of the children also showed their hidden talents. After a full day of learning, coupled with a photography session, food boxes were distributed to these young ones. HOPE has always been thoughtful about the children who are affiliated with it. It has always shown its full responsibility by demonstrating such field trips and events for the children of HOPE.
