DOT School of Design’s ‘Best Art Teachers’ recognises outstanding Art Teachers in each district of Tamil Nadu and Puducherry.
Deadline for the Nomination is May 10,2022
Program Goals:
DOT School of Design is Chennai’s first exclusive multidisciplinary design college offering professional bachelors and masters courses in design. Being one of the pioneers in offering design education, DOT takes this initiative to show that Art is a fundamental part of Design. Also, DOT aims to break the prevailing stereotypes and support the art teachers who are trailblazers in their respective domains. Despite the lack of resources, setbacks and a global pandemic affecting the economy and people's lives, there are few achievers who have helped in the proliferation of art during these adverse times. DOT aims to recognize their endeavors and honor them with ‘Best Art Teacher' Award.
