Of all the things that a student could learn in a school, Fine Arts happens to be one of the most lucrative and at the same time one of the least noticed subjects. One might question and wonder , how could such a subject be of any use to the student? In a world filled with competition, where hundreds and thousands tests themselves every year to get into the best engineering or administrative institutions, how could the subtle ability to draw straight and curved lines be of any importance in a student’s life? Why should he/she waste his time scribbling and scratching and splashing the canvas when he/she could utilize it to learn a new topic on static electricity or throw a few hoops in the basketball court? Well, for a moment, your question may sound legitimate, your inquiries may be reasonable. But before you make a decision, ask yourselves this question - What would the world do without art? Paris would not be Paris, Leonardo da Vinci would just be another painter and Mona Lisa would not be smiling today. the ancient hieroglyphics would have been simply numbers and figures. There would have been only one God. The Taj Mahal would have been just another Cemetery. The world would be less bright and the cities less colorful. Art may not be everyone's cup of tea and so it goes unnoticed, unpracticed. But one must accept that it is one of the most integral part of human civilization and without art we human beings would be merely mortals without the power of perception and imagination.

Coming back to the actual matter of concern, let me tell you a little something about art in North Point.

Right from the primary Division to the I.C.S.E. batch, students in North Point are given the opportunity to paint their dreams and sketch their ideas on a white sheet of paper. Under the Guidance of our art teacher, Mr. Allen Lepcha, who has done a Diploma in Fine arts, students in the art room are exposed to different kinds of pastels and colors and papers and graphite. With the required proper assistance and guidance from our dear parents a child might very well grow up to be a pioneer in the field of Fine arts.

One might be fairly familiar with the annual drama put up by the senior school more widely known in our school as the “Major Play". If you have watched the plays then you probably noticed all the props and background sets and the chromatic costumes and make-up on the actors. Well, all of those would not have been possible without the sincere effort and dedication of our art teacher Mr. Allen, and his group of young talents, and without their initiatives, the plays would have been far less colorful and lose half of its charm.

So, why not let your son give it a try at sketching and painting. In the worlds of our former Principal and Rector, Fr. Kinley Tshering,"Talents are not born with, they are discovered, worked upon and perfected through trial and error". North point could make use of another artistic mind, a to be da Vinci and the world could make use of another Brilliant North Pointer.
