New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has directed the schools affiliated to it to introduce art-based education for classes I – X.
Driven with a motive to educate the students about the culture and diversity of the country, the project will be considered for internal evaluation for the students.
While the board has made it mandatory for the students to take at least one art-integrated project per subject, the project should also carry any art form of the state/UT under Ek Bharat Shrestha Bharat Programme, a notice on CBSE website said.
Meanwhile, Union Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ took to twitter and made an announcement in this regard.
वर्तमान सत्र से सभी सीबीएसई स्कूलों में कक्षा 1-10 के छात्रों के लिए कला आधारित प्रोजेक्ट कार्य शामिल किया जा रहा है।
