A one-day camp ‘Arty and Crafty’ was conducted at National Institute of Speech and Hearing (NISH), Akkulam on Saturday. The camp, which lasted from 9 am to 4 pm, had around thirty students from different schools in the city participating.
The students were given training in painting, crafts and animation by the BFA, BSc and BASLP degree students of NISH at the camp, which was organised by ‘Gravity Club’, an integrated club of both hearing and deaf students at the institute.
“The training provided is different from the training provided at other centres as the mode of communication will be different,” said executive director Samuel N Mathew while inaugurating the camp.
The hearing-impaired trainers communicated with the students using sign language. The organisers of Gravity Club, Raji N R, Sreeba Sreedhar, Aleena and Nazeeba M, communicated with the students.
