- Classes IX and X, the students will take up the art integrated project work as a subject enrichment activity in all the subjects for internal assessment.
One of the objectives of art integrated education is to make the students aware of the vast and diverse cultural heritage of our country. Therefore, Students will take up integration with any form of Indian Art – visual or performing, as it will be helpful to students to easily understand the project that is culturally connected to them. Teachers need to facilitate the learning of the chosen Indian art form and ensure that the students are able to creatively integrate the art form(s) being used in the project.
In minimum one project work of students from classes I –X, it is mandatory to integrate an art form of the paired State/UT, as defined under Ek Bharat Shrestha Bharat Programme. For example, Art Integrated Project Work of the students of the schools in the State of Delhi will be based on the art form of Sikkim and so on.
