Visual and Performing Arts 


Rukmini Devi Public School provides a comprehensive education to learners of all ages and levels. Founded and conceived as a school with interdisciplinary learning of the arts with the intent to discover the artistic niche of the students, it offers a variety of artistic disciplines. Subjects offered include Performing Arts: Music (Instrumental Music and Vocal Music), Dance , Visual Art (Art and Craft) and Theatre for the holistic development of the child.

Art is an act and a process of making materials work which from concept to creation hold fidelity to the creative impulse. It may be interpreted in different ways often relating to creativity, aesthetics and generation of emotion, but this always allows a person to express his/her feelings and thoughts freely without any boundation of time or material.

The Visual and Performing Arts policy of the school emerges from international, cross-disciplinary work that takes a wider, holistic approach in researching the dynamic role of music and the arts in social life and cultural experience. Cutting-edge work in this area shows the inculcation of aesthetic experiences and artistic forms
