CHENNAI: Sholinganallur, mostly known for its IT crowd, might soon be a hub for music enthusiasts and other artistes as well. There are plans to open a new college for fine arts and music in the area in the next two years, said Veena Gayatri, vice-chancellor of Tamil Nadu University of Music and Fine Arts, on Friday. She was speaking at the eighth inaugural function of Create Club at MOP Vaishnav College.
Impressed by the work done by students of the Visual Communication department of MOP Vaishnav to bring out the Create Club, she said that she would be introducing something similar in Tamil Nadu University of Music and Fine Arts as well. Gayatri Krishnamurthy, assistant professor, Visual Communication, also appreciated the students for their effort.
As part of the function, a two-day workshop on various art forms was organised on the college premises, on July 25 and 26.
The theme of the function this year is ‘Yellow’ and the event saw students dressed in the bright colour. “We’ve chosen ‘Yellow’ as the theme because it goes with the logo of Create Club. For the first time this year, we are planning to tie up with an NGO and will be designing logos for them,” said Rhea Goyal, a third-year student and secretary of the club.
