Art as Therapy

Art is an act of expressing feelings, thoughts, and observations. The thing about art is that it’s so diverse that there are as many ways to understand it as there are people. The meaning of art is shaped by the intentions of the artist as well as the feelings and ideas it engenders in the viewer.

Importance of Art and motive of Art Club

Art- A silent and more subtle way of communicating and expressing without the use of words.

Art is significant in creating a culture of thought uniquely positioned to move people—inspiring us, inciting new questions and provoking curiosity, excitement, and outrage. It cannot be denied how a well-crafted piece of art can have a great impact on society.

Art making can also be highly soothing and stress-reducing; it is also a source of relaxation, gratification, and self-expression. Art therapy revolves around the concept that the creative process exists within every individual. We all have a gift of creativity, and it is unfolding that inner creativity which will take us on a healing journey as unique as we are as individuals.

It’s with this aim of developing a culture of thought and encouraging students to explore inner creativity, a group of students started Art Club in October,2020.

Power of Presentation using Art

Visual arts are art forms such as painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, photography, video, filmmaking, design, crafts and architecture. We don’t always have people who listen, words help us only when we have a listener or a reader. When you express yourself through visual art you don’t need a listener or a reader. You need a viewer. Finding a viewer is relatively easy. Express yourself through visual art and we promise you will have a greater audience and even if we don’t, the process of making is itself rewarding.
