The Bethany High Art Department: Crafting Creativity, Shaping Visions
Imagination Meets the Canvas
Within the vibrant corridors of our Art Department, imagination is kindled, skills are honed, and the artistic visions of our students are brought to life. Our dynamic curriculum is designed to uncover and nurture the creative potential within each student, fostering an environment where classical techniques meet contemporary innovation. From the swirl of a paintbrush to the precision of a sculptor’s chisel, our students explore an array of mediums, guided by expert educators who are themselves practicing artists.
Here, art is not just a subject but a dialogue with the world, an expression of individuality, and a platform for change. We celebrate diversity in artistic expression, encouraging our students to develop a personal style that is as unique as their own fingerprints. Exhibitions, workshops, and collaborative projects serve as both a showcase and a testbed for emerging talent, preparing our students for a future where they not only master the arts but also lead its evolution.

What makes us unique?
Bethany High aim to create a supportive environment during the art classes:
1. We foster a safe and encouraging atmosphere where children feel free to express themselves without judgment. Encourage their creativity and imagination.
2. We celebrate Achievements: Celebrate and display children’s artwork. Show them that their efforts are valued and appreciated, boosting their self-esteem and motivation.
3. Excursions: Art department organizes excursions to notable institutions & galleries like Chitrakala parishad. This enables students to interact with artists, famous artworks & explore their artistic sensibilities.
We follow the ICSE Fine Arts syllabus. There is no theory, just practicals so there is no pressure on students. If you integrate Art into a child’s academics , your child can derive additional benefits. Even if a parent feels their child doesn’t have the necessary skills, but is passionate towards Art, it is a skill that can always be learnt.
In classes 9 through 12, the department focuses on the ICSE syllabus consisting of Paper 1 Still-Life and Paper 2 Nature Study.
