Learning drawing is very important for different reasons. It helps to bring creative ideas to life on paper or other media. Painting requires a lot of concentration, therefore aiding in the activation of the brain. Drawing immensely increases IQ and memory power. Learning painting helps to stabilize and control the human mind and thereby helping the student in academics. Research has shown that a student who learns drawing requires less time to prepare his lessons for exams than a student who does not learn painting.
Learning painting and drawing is also about learning art and culture. If we travel through time, we will get to know different eras of history and their different painting techniques. Learning proper art and drawing helps to learn history and culture with learning structure and innovation.
Along with learning drawing, Northern School of Music has structured art courses which aim to create complete artists of the future. Examination facility for drawing and painting is available at NSM, but it is entirely optional, though highly recommended as it opens the door to numerous opportunities.
Northern School of Music happens to be the only art and painting school in North Kolkata to provide classes on so many genres of painting and drawing.
Drawing and Painting competitions are held at Northern School of Music and the top paintings and drawings are given exposure at our annual concert, where they get displayed.
