Art is a universally accepted mode of expression which develops creativity, aesthetic sensibilities and sharpens senses through keen observation of the environment. Art is a way of discovering space, organization, colours, forms, lines, texture, movement; sound etc. A student develops a sense of organization which further inculcates a sense of order with regard to their personal appearance, home, school and community.
