As part of its integrated curriculum, Akshara focuses on Fine Arts as well as Performing Arts for holistic development of the child. Children get the opportunity to learn hobbies that are fun and which kindle creativity in young minds and stimulate artistic development. The school facilitates the teaching of following hobbies:
Classical Dances : Bharatnatyam, Kathak and Folk dances are taught to the children to help them develop an appreciation of the rich culture and traditions of our country including the associated religious and mythological tales.
Vocal & Instrumental Music : Music is a powerful and unique form of communication. We believe in inculcating in our children passion to love and appreciate both Vocal and Instrumental music. Instruments like Tabla, Harmonium and Keyboard are taught to the students.
Western Music : Special activity rooms for teaching drums, keyboard and guitar have been set up by an external agency for teaching these instruments during school and after school hours. The agency provides online access to their teaching material for children to practice at home.
