FINE ARTS CLUB

About Us

Finnese Art is the most sublime mission of man since it is the exercise of thought, seeking to understand the world and make it understood, and that is what we, Finesse- the Fine arts club, seek to do in this club. We feel a campus poised on sheer scientific thrills requires a balancing dose of art so that aesthetics and beauty around us are not forgotten.


 

Why join this club?

It is a universal phenomenon that in childhood every child dribbles his/her world through colourful pastels and watercolours. As the child matures into an adult, the practice and passion gradually fades away in the midst of gruelling academic stress and parental demands. The immense competition and thirst for success pushes back the once creative and fearless soul of that child. Art gives you a chance to find yourself according to your imagination and solitude. Art helps you understand yourself better by making you realise that you can also create something beautiful. Art indulges your senses into building a connection with your creative mind and Mother Nature. Art makes you feel good! With this spirit, the Fine arts club welcomes all the kalakaars in a creative journey. Starting with the event ‘Love you Kalakaar’, which got an overwhelming response, Fine arts club promises to make the coming months more colourful and full of life. Regular monthly classes and demonstrations from reputed artists, discussions on artworks, a fine-art festival with loads of other fun events ensures you for a really exciting time in the campus. So, fear not all the kalakaars, as you dust off your worries and let the creative being shine bright. Anyone and everyone are welcome in the club. Keep your spirits burning!

 

What we do!

The fine arts club organizes art events in the campus like workshops to learn Sketching , photoshop, illustrator, events during manthan and alcheringa.
