Art

Art education enriches our students’ lives and learning. At Scindia School we believe that all students deserve the opportunity to experience a rich Art education. It stimulates and encourages creative growth, increases the understanding of the importance of Art and design in our contemporary society. The students learn to enjoy and appreciate works of Art in different mediums like water colour, acrylic, pen and ink drawing, oil pastel, stone carving, wood carving, clay modelling, textile design, batik, tie and dye paper mache and metal work. They get an exposure to different schools of paintings – from the Bengal to Modern. Practice of art also includes decorations for occasions, stage props and costumes and outdoor installations. Through the participation of students in various courses the Art Department tries to develop the skills and techniques as well as an excitement and satisfaction in the creation of personal projects. The Art Department consists of six faculty members teaching different forms of Art with three assistants who help us in our work. The Department works in co-ordination with the rest of the departments creating products like table lamps, coasters, bed sheets, cushion covers, trays, masks, wall hangings and many other decorative items. Special emphasis is given to teach the students to learn the main stream of Fine Arts.
