An initiative of “A thousand Art project” with the support of Department of Art & Culture launched the Saturday Art School at Art & Culture directorate Kohima by Sr. Art executive of Art & culture department Nagaland Vilalhou Noudi on Tuesday.
Noudi in his address said it was the department’s desire to make art affordable and accessible to everyone and with the launching of Saturday art school; he invited every artist to come forward to make their contribution to the society in any manner possible. He said Arts contribute in building society and add beauty to life and environment. He opined that arts would help in reducing many social evils that are invading “our” society and the art has power to inspire, to influence and to build.
He said inborn creativity in man was a gift of God to be developed and used for His glory, however the concept of art in the schools appear to be misunderstood at different levels. Stressing the importance of art in school, he said it was meant to facilitate development of a creative imagination in the child and without this creative imagination the child would just be like another animal. Art activities are meant to enhance the child’s creativity in all spheres of life, he added.
Basic and advance courses of art would be provided to the students by the professional artists in the state. Saturday school of art is a unique opportunity to open new space in minds, learning basic skills of the visual arts means to get started on your own journey to discover your own artistic language.
Saturday art school classes would be held every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. from May to July 2017, which will be 36 duration in total. Forms would be available at department of art and culture (art wing) or one may contact 9774-94-6140/9089-27-2653.
