“The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, buttheir inward significance”.
Education in “Art” is an integral part of the development of each human being. It provides the learners with non-academic motivation, aesthetic awareness, cultural exposure, creativity etc. Sruthilaya Fine Arts Club always appreciates and explores the hidden skills, talents and sprit of the students by bringing them together we work with a Vision and a Mission. Sruthilaya Fine Arts Club was inaugurated on 23rd June 2015 by Guru.Smt.KanchanaJanardhanan, Director of Mayura School of Classical Dances, Chennai. She motivated the students through her thought-provoking speech. She conveyed the message that extra-curricular activities like Fine Arts and Visual Arts play an important role in a student’s life. They enable them to have holistic development by achieving Co-ordination, concentration and mental relaxation.
