Every child is an artist, and the Art and Craft Department at Sanskriti…the School seeks to instill creativity, originality and a keen sense of perception amongst its students. We have motivated the students to learn from experience and failure and to emerge from them with a better understanding of art.
To encourage the competitive spirit among our students, we regularly conduct inter-house competitions. Those with an artistic bent of mind have their skills honed by our experts and are provided opportunities to represent the school in inter-school competitions. In fact, our students have gone right up to national level competitions.
In addition to the regular classes of Fine Arts, the department conducts club activities to bring the children in touch with their creative cultural background and to encourage innovation amongst them.
