KALAKSHETRA

Kalakshetra

Kalakshetra literally means ( Kala - Arts, Kshetra - Field or Holy place ) a Holy place of Arts. This Centre was started in1936 in order that India may once again revive and develop its ancient culture and set a standard of true Art in its new life after its freedom. It seeks to build up the character of the young through the Art and create a true Centre of International Understanding through the one universal language - Art. Art is the international language in which mind can speak to mind, heart to heart, where lips are dumb. At the College of Fine Arts, music, dancing, painting and crafts are taught to students of both sexes from India and from other parts of the world.

A "gurukula" atmosphere prevails within the campus and students are encouraged to lead simple lives. Throughout the year, special cultural programmes are arranged for the benefit of the students, so that they may learn to appreciate true art and the ancient culture of India. The traditional form of dance in all its purity and dignity is the trademark of Kalakshetra.

Music is a subsidiary for all dance students. They are encouraged to learn vocal music. The art of Indian make-up, traditional costumes and theatre craft are learnt gradually by the advanced and post graduate students through participation in the various Kalakshetra productions and in their preparation.
