“The meaning of life is contained in every single expression of life. It is present in the infinity of forms and phenomena that exist in all of creation” – Michael Jackson

We emphasize expression of thoughts and ideas through Art. Any emotion or gesture, however weak or intense, can be perfectly portrayed through the mesmerizing tools of Art. We cover all sorts of activities pertaining to the interest of the youngsters and provide them a platform to showcase their talent in the areas of sketching, painting, rangoli, photography, animation etc. Students from all domains enthusiastically participate and enjoy the events under Visual Arts.

EXPRESSIONS-PAINTING HUB From Picasso to Rothko, painters from different traditions have striven to express their feelings through their art. While color, texture, form and line are important to the composition, emotions are often the driving force behind the creation of artwork. Not everyone can make a living depicting their moods by way of creative endeavors, but almost everyone can pick up a brush and find a new way to convey emotions. This stands the main motive behind the painting hub which organizes painting competitions round the year on various themes and forms. Blank canvases, earthen pots, big posters colorful chunris, anything and everything can be creatively painted with innovative idea under this hub.

ICREATE Sketching ICREATE SKETCHING HUB came into existence in 2011 and under the hard work and guidance of Mrs. Kanupriya Misra Bakhru. It has organized many successful events during the entire two academic years as well as college fests Impressions 2011 and Impressions 2012. Icreate sketching hub is not just a hub where the students with great sketching skills can only participate but this hub supports and guides all those who actually want to develop skills in sketching. Icreate also provides the opportunity to those students who once use to sketch and were really good sketchers but due to heavy work load and schedules are now not in a regular contact with their talent, so Icreate provides a platform for all such people, it’s not that only students but faculty can even participate and they have even participated, Exhibitions and competitions organized by Icreate have also experienced the contribution of our honorable faculty members. With time the hub is famous for introducing several workshops in which certain potential artists are invited and they guide the audience, the hub has even organized art gallery and exhibition to motivate the sketchers of JIIT and also to bring awareness amongst all by introducing simple pencil sketch.
