Art in Education

The quality education in Jawahar Navodaya Vidayalayas is ensured through Art in Education Programme by linking community and the school. Art in Education within the context of the Residential Culture of NVS becomes the parennial source of flow of creative energy. Art in Education becomes an opportunity for students to learn and understand, express and interpret life. It is the cooperative effort latent in a residential school system as well as in the Art in Education Programme which provides a springboard for the advancement of students towards creative dimensions of their personality. Integration through art is a way of achieving unity in midst of diversity of tradition through the Art in Education Programme. In addition to developing values of national Integration, a strong component of culture has been provided for NVS students by organizing different kinds of performing art, craft, visual art, music and theatre workshops each year in the Art in Education programmes. Training is given to students in the performing art, craft, music and visual art forms that are prevalent in their area. The artists and experts who are invited to train the children in a JNV generally belong to the same area in which the JNV is located. Thus, both students and experts share cultural affinities as well as knowledge of local practices and customs. Often, this has resulted in not only acquainting with the cultural heritage of their area but has also helped preserve that heritage through the activities of the children.
