Integration of Visual Arts along with Scholastics subjects is very important. It helps students to bring out their creativity as well as develop their personality. Students learn important skills like observation, self-expression, focus, discipline, perseverance, self confidence and collaboration through art education.
Students who are visual learners, learn faster through the practice of art and craft. They develop aesthetic sense, understand and appreciate good art work. The school has age appropriate activities which are integrated with the curriculum to broaden the students’ thought process and creativity.
We believe in holistic development, freedom of expression and creativity in the field of the students choice. For the primary years, exposure to the different forms of performing arts like dance, theatre and music where they learn the basics is very important. When they come to the middle and higher grades they are given a choice to explore the skills further, in the area of their choice.
Each art form helps the child to open up and gain stage confidence, to be able to speak out without any inhibitions and also participate in cultural activities boldly. This also promotes the Multiple Intelligence and opens up doors to their future prospects and probabilities.
Dance is an expression of joy through body movement and rhythm. Through dance students learn team work, focus and improvisational skills. Dance is a wonderful physical activity and provides rigour for healthy life style. Students are exposed to various dance forms and regularly participate in competitions.
It is a research fact that Music helps plants grow better, calms and soothens the human mind. Plato once said that music is a more potent instrument than any other form of education. It offers the growth of the child’s brain academically, emotionally, physically and spiritually. Our students are trained in western vocals and Indian music. The school choir functions as the base group for all school events.
