Painting 100 Shiva Lingas 

 Painting 100 Shiva Lingas 

Art has long been seen as an outlet for creativity and imagination, but what if it could be used to represent something much more meaningful?

This is exactly what happened when Art an Idea International Pre School Kids drew 100 Shiva Linga on the occasion of Maha Shivratri. Through their artwork, these kids embraced a greater message of love, peace, and unity. By painting 100 Shiva Lingas, they were able to represent the power and strength of our Hindu faith.

Background of the Painting Project

Maha Shivratri is an important festival dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva, celebrated annually in India. To commemorate the occasion, pre-school kids from Bengaluru, Karnataka undertook an ambitious project: painting 100 Shiva Lingas.

This project was made possible by Art an Idea International Pre-School. They gave the kids everything they needed to create their own masterpieces: paints, brushes and even a step-by-step guide to painting a Shivalinga.

For these preschool kids, this is a chance to express their creativity and appreciation for their religion, which is sure to be an enriching experience for them. After all, teaching young children about your culture and its rituals helps to build a strong foundation from which they can grow and expand their knowledge.


How the Kids Reacted to the Art Project

Some kids were a bit overwhelmed by the project at first, but when they got going, they had a blast! Sure, some of the smaller kids needed some help with the paint and brushes, but overall you could really see them embracing this art project full-force.

  • One of the parents said, “The amount of energy and enthusiasm my child put into painting these tiny Shivalingas was truly remarkable.” This sentiment was echoed all around the classroom.
  • The kids were amazed at how their 100 little Shivalingas all fit together in perfect harmony. It was a great way for them to learn about how art can come together in one big beautiful picture.
  • You could really tell that the kids loved their work—even after they had finished painting all of their Shivalingas and proudly displayed them on their desks, many of them would take photos or videos to post on social media, or draw little designs around it with crayons. It’s not every day that pre-schoolers get to make something so unique!

The project of painting 100 Shivalingas proved to be a great success and was a fitting way to celebrate Maha Shivaratri. Not only did it bring a lot of enthusiasm and joy to the preschoolers but also helped them learn more about Hindu culture and its traditions. The school and its teachers were highly praised for their creative effort and for encouraging the kids to participate in such meaningful and fun activities
