Modern methods of education are often directed towards brings the best academic results. In the highly competition oriented Indian education, school managements and faculty frequently overlook the importance of arts and creative abilities in life. It is considered too secondary and may be allotted only a few hours in an academic year.
Balanced education like balanced diet is a must to mould better students and in due course better persons. Being one of the premier residential schools in Kerala, Labour India Gurukulam Public School understands that only balanced education can create better citizens for tomorrow. To give wings to the imagination of our students, Labour India Gurukulam School has recently inaugurated the art lab. Creativity is often seen as a form of intelligence. Creative pursuits help children to break the mould of monotonous life of just academics. It helps them live and express in their own way, thereby creating a sense of freedom in them. The lab has a number facilities and sessions to bring out the best creative efforts from the children.
The initiative which comes from the visionary zeal of one of the best residential schools in Kerala will set a new benchmark in the approach of creative learning for children. The Art lab envisages to promote arts like drawing, dancing, music, and other creative arts. This will help the children to develop their ability to think and innovate, observe and absorb, build self confidence and make them enjoy really engaging and good time learning. The Art Lab is a perfect tool for personality development. Often, we see that people who do better in life are people who have interest in some art or other. Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam, for example, played sitar quite well.
Labour India Gurukulam Public School will introduce the students to the arts from a young age. The art lab will take it further. The first grade children will be given training in pencil drawing & cartooning and the second grade students progress to the world of freehand painting & digital painting. The third grade students will be introduced to commercial art, the fourth graders can hone their skills in photography and image editing and the fifth graders can try their hand at videography with video and audio editing. While the students of class six dabble in acting and 2D animation, the children of Class seven are given a closer view of 3D Animation and clay modeling and those in class eight are shown the finer aspects of fashion designing. Children in ninth and tenth grade get training in game designing and advanced game designing respectively.
As we can see, the Art Lab is more than the usual art classes at schools. It introduces several interesting topics in art to the children and tries to bring out the best in them. No wonder, Labour India Gurukulam tops the charts among the residential schools in Kerala for innovations in education.
