Pearl Academy, ranked amongst the best institutions for design and media education, recently organised POW WOW, a lively initiative by the Academy’s Foundation School offering a multitude of workshops for freshers. The program is designed to help students develop personally, professionally and academically through a series of multi-sensory and multi-disciplinary activities. This year’s theme was #powwowCITY’18.
With Pearl Academy’s presence in four cities, namely Delhi, Noida, Mumbai and Jaipur, POW WOW aims to reshape these cities into a more culturally dynamic place by activating spaces and engaging in the arts. The event included workshops, which gave students a taste of theatre, dance, painting and craft. Renowned dance instructor Lalita Choudhary introduced students to various dance forms, popular ones being Bollywood, contemporary, hip-hop, among others. Avdhut Naverkar, who has been successfully running art institutes in Mumbai for the past two decades, conducted workshops on art, photography and outdoor landscapes. Students were also given an opportunity to explore their acting skills under the guidance of well-known theatre artist, Dev Fauzdar. The event also saw popular voice artist Rishi Gambhir, who helped students look at the possibilities to modulate voices in different pitches through his workshop ‘Sound Act’. Jewellery designer and Pearl faculty Bhoomi Dave also guided students to create, explore, and play with beads, wire and metal to create extraordinary adornments.
Ruchita Verma, Campus Director, Pearl Academy welcomed the students to the Academy. “I warmly welcome you to our family. The Pearl Total Learning System offers a large number of innovative learning platforms.
