At DPS Surat, we believe in developing the aesthetic consciousness of children from a very early age, as this quality lies at the root of all civilized human endeavour. The development of tolerance for different forms of artistic expression is as important today as the ability to appreciate and create art itself. We foster all these qualities in our students as they learn the following forms of artistic self expression at different stages of their schooling here:
1. Colour charts:
Children are made aware of different categories of colours and how to mix them to arrive at fresh hues.
2. Pencil Shading:
Children learn different techniques of shading, like stippling, line work, gradation, etc.
3. Textile and Block Printing:
The craft of repeating a design on fabric or other material and colouring it attractively.
