Photography is not just an extraordinary skill but also a visual language that combines the significance of art, history and digital awareness into one. Photography engages the various faculties of a child be it his creativity, thinking, emotions or observation. Any material can prove to be good enough for photographic adventures. Photography allows one to express him/her through an art form. It involves a good integration of various disciplines whether it is symmetry of hills or a tree standing out from a forest of thousands. The images can express a variety of emotions like joy, sorrow, wonder and sympathy. Every human emotion can find a place in photography.
The pedagogical approach adapted in the school to facilitate photography sessions is practical and aims to provide hands on experience to the students wherein they explore different techniques, camera features, subject as well as the theme. Taking the learning beyond classroom various field visits are organized as well as e-learning, industry driven projects, digital and video inputs are arranged for the students. Our students have honed their skills , pursued their passion and their work is a testimony that they have begun to see the world through their camera lens, developing their unique point of view and gaining insight into the artistic thinking that paves way for great photography.
"Photography is the story I fail to put into words.”— Destin Sparks
Sculpture as a component of Visual Arts gives opportunities to explore all art activities that result in two-dimensional and three-dimensional forms. We must understand that without an exposure to sculpture, our students will be less prepared to appreciate nature; for nature presents herself to us particularly in three-dimensional form. It is important, therefore, that the young learners become aware of the visual pollution created by man, in his journey of development. The knowledge of design quality and the relationship of form and its function will equip the sculpture student to meet the challenge of improving their environment. The Sculpture course curriculum has been designed in such a way as to provide adequate foundation in the form of knowledge and skills to the students who would like to pursue Art Education. The sessions are oriented to develop self-esteem of the students through appreciation of their own sculpture products. The course provides opportunity for creatively using indigenous and contemporary tools and materials in Sculpture. Our students have shown their remarkable perceptual, problem solving and analytical skills by producing high quality sculpture work.
Sculpture is the art of the intelligence
