The Art Room: an ‘all technical- art club’
Started with the goal of promoting passion for art among people from technical backgrounds with a small team in 2017, The Art Room is a student community club at Amity University Rajasthan that has its work displayed in a dedicated hall on campus which is managed by the club.
“Creativity is contagious, pass it on” – Albert Einstein
Challenged initially about art not being their primary field of work, these technical people have left all shocked by their wonderful work. The founding team was led by Hemant Kumar, who was a Mechanical Engineering student at that time. Passion for art has been drawing more and more creative people towards The Art Room since it all started. These people have been taking initiatives towards different ideas when it comes to showcasing their talent. The club is NOT externally funded and raises funds internally through the student body, whenever the need comes up. The members contribute in different ways including hall decoration, lighting, collection of art from different artists, planning and implementation, poster designing, teaching charcoal sketching to other students, to point a few.
Currently, The Art Room is jointly led by a core team of people, and its latest exhibition (as on 18th Sept, '18) was named Ibtida- means The Beginning, was an orientation for the fresher-men batch.
