TIPS students work in a wide range of 2D and 3D media, including painting, drawing, collage, and computer graphics. There is an emphasis in student artwork on individuality and creativity in response to research as well as in response to spontaneous art activity as part of the academic curriculum.
Early & Primary School offers an engaging, challenging and active experience of the creative process. Classes are designed to encourage students to explore the world around them through the creation, and appreciation of art.
Middle School builds on this ‘aesthetic enthusiasm’ teaching the processes and techniques to further refine skills using a more complex range of models and concepts.
High School students will be able to demonstrate a variety of modes of analytical and perceptive thinking and independently create a high calibre of imaginative and creative work.
We all love watching little children dance around the room with little or no inhibition, singing along with their favorite songs in a voice that’s clear and strong, though maybe a little out of tune. Music is an obvious outlet for self-expression and creativity. But far beyond providing an opportunity to sing and dance, researchers have shown that a strong musical education provides so much more. Music, for example, develops self-discipline. The child who allots time for practicing each day is known to develop similar habits in conjunction with other subjects as well. Organizational skills increase & the child learns what it takes to be good at something.
Ensemble experience also builds teamwork. Band members learn the importance of being a reliable member of a group and are educated as to the importance of being a team player and not necessarily always “the star.”
Scientists have also discovered that learning to read music or play a musical instrument develops higher thinking skills. The child who is skilled at music excels at problem-solving, evaluation, and analysis. Music reading uses the same portion of the brain that’s used in mathematical thinking.
We believe that it is essential that music must be taught throughout the curriculum, and not just in separate areas such as orchestra and tuitions. That is one way we can assure opportunities for all students to develop their capacities more fully. Students from Kindergarten through Senior School are involved in learning Indian Classical music and Instruments.
