Brief Report of the programme: School children today are growing up in a highly visual world, surrounded by images of television, videos, advertising displays, and other media. The visual arts help them to develop personal values and gain self-esteem by creating images and forms in relation to themselves and their environment. Looking and responding to art lead to an enlightened sense of environmental awareness as children develop their aesthetic perceptions.
Through the visual arts, children learn to appreciate the visual form which characterizes either their own expressions in art or the work of other artists. They can respond emotionally to colour, they can study the impact of proportions, and develop a sense of structure, movement and perspective in visual expression.
In the backdrop of the above, Faculty of Education organized a Workshop on Visual Arts as A Pedagogy specifically designed for B.Ed Teacher Trainees on 18th January 2018 by Ms Antara Pain, an eminent visual artist.
The workshop focused on the importance of transacting identified concepts of various subjects encompassing Science, Social Science and Humanities taught at different levels in Indian schools through visual arts. B.Ed. trainees enjoyed the workshop as they created their own visuals and exchanged their experiences at the culmination of the workshop.
