Fine Arts

The society was established in early 1970s and was known as the 'Paint and Brush Society'. In early 1980s, the society's name was changed to 'Fine Arts Society'. The Society presently has more than 100 members. The Society aims at the holistic development of the students by giving them platform to nurture their artistic talent and encourage the students to participate in various arts activities inside and outside the college. Besides , the society's events help the students to improve their imagination & creativity and to develop their leadership abilities. The society provides an opportunity to redefine and reshape the concepts and experiences into some or other form of art.

A 'Talent Hunt' is held at the commencement of the academic session to explore the budding artists. The event is open for participation to the first year students of the college. This is followed by a number of Fine Arts Competitions - Sketching, Poster-making, Card-making, Folder-making, Calligraphy, Cartooning, etc- in which all students participate in large numbers. The society also holds “demonstrations” on not only different forms of art but also handicrafts- fabric painting, flower-making, pottery-designing, thread work, etc.  As a part of Montage, the Annual Cultural Festival of JMC, Fine Arts Society under the nomenclature BEAUX ARTS, conducts various art-related competitions, like Sketching, Painting, Grafiti, Collage-Making, Wealth out of Waste, Rangoli- making, Face Painting, Puppet-making, Poster- making, Calligraphy, Mannequin-dressing, and other art & craft related competitions.
