Art at Vidyamangal

  • The goal of art education at Vidyamangal School is to bring out the creative, expressive and aesthetic potential of each child, and to promote the attitudes, thinking and discipline necessary for all types of learning.
  • Art education at Vidyamangal School engages students in a process that helps them develop self-esteem, self-discipline, cooperation, and self-motivation necessary for success in life.
  • Craft is a means of interpreting many social issues and way of living. Many words, forms of measurement, colours and material have a craft origin. Craft in both theory and practice is a powerful tool for emotional, economic and intellectual empowerment for children at all levels, locations and sectors of school and society. Working with hands, with materials and with techniques helps in understanding processes, becoming resourceful, taking initiative, and in problem solving.
  • Such experiences are of irreplaceable value for all children. Craft adds value to projects of all kinds as illustrative teaching aids and as learning devices. At Vidyamangal School we view craft as a gateway to the study of history, social studies, environmental studies, geography, arts and economics since it is an integral part of Indian culture, aesthetics and economy.
