“It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much and can accomplish much and what is done in love is well done”
Vincent Van Gogh
Visual art is a fundamental component of the human experience reflecting the world and time we live in as it can be a source of inspiration, reflection, and joy as art not only allows us to self-reflect but it also has a powerful impact on our overall well-being. Visual art is enlightening, challenging, and informative, but it can also be therapeutic, offering perspective on the challenges we face in our daily lives. The ability to see art in the world around us is a beautiful thing, one can see beauty in the sunsets, in the rising tides, and the dance of a child, as beauty, is present everywhere. Creative activity awakens the senses and helps us to think about the world around us in a new and exciting way and helps us discover more about ourselves as individuals and what we want to share with those around us.
At MIT Vishwashanti Gurukul School, fine arts, drama, music, and dance have always been an integrated part of the educational curriculum. We weave the arts into our core classroom curricula, as well as teach specific artistic skills and abilities as art education connects students with their own culture as well as with the wider world.
