Routes2Roots Launches Art Workshops in Karnataka Schools for Arts Integration under NEP


Routes2Roots (R2R), a Delhi-based non-profit organization dedicated to promoting art, culture, and heritage, will be conducting art workshops across schools in Karnataka. This initiative is designed to support the implementation of India’s New Education Policy (NEP) by incorporating the arts into the traditional STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) curriculum, transforming it into STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics).

The workshops will feature live sessions with esteemed artists and art teachers who will visit schools to educate students on various traditional art forms. These include Kuchipudi, Hindustani, Bharatanatyam, and Odissi. The interactive sessions will provide students with a unique opportunity to learn directly from experts, watch live performances, and engage in Q&A sessions.

The workshops will commence on June 26 and will cover a range of schools in Karnataka, including cities like Bengaluru, Dharwad, Hubli, Mangaluru, Mysuru, etc.

Commenting on the initiative, Rakesh Gupta, Founder, Routes2Roots, said, “Integrating arts into the curriculum is essential for the holistic development of students. It enhances their cultural awareness and creativity. Our offline art workshops are well aligned with NEP’s vision of fostering creativity and cultural awareness among young learners. By experiencing and engaging with various art forms, students can develop a deeper appreciation for their cultural heritage. We are excited to have a team of talented and experienced artists collaborating with us to bring the richness of the arts to every child. This initiative is a significant step towards making art education accessible to students across the country”
