67th BPSC Art and Culture Preparation Tips: The importance of Art and Culture is rising year on year and BPSC is laying more and more emphasis on this part. However, due to the paucity of art and culture guidance, many students miss out on this part. An additional problem is the fragmented nature of available material for this section. Some would say, refer NIOS, some would ask to refer NCERTs and so on.

BPSC Books for Art and Culture

Check the BPSC Books for all important topics for both Prelims and mains 

1. Indian Art and Culture by Nitin Singhania

This book is comprehensive as far as Art and Culture are concerned. The book also provides previous year questions at the end of each chapter for testing purposes.

2. NCERT Book: 

  • An Introduction to Indian Art Part -1, Class XI NCERT
  • Themes in Indian History-I, Class XII NCERT
  • Themes in Indian History-II, Class XII NCERT

BPSC Preparation Strategy for Art and Culture 

Because Art & Culture is such a broad topic, it is critical that you stick to the syllabus and study only the pertinent sections. Here are some of the most important aspects of BPSC art and culture preparation. Below are some tips that will be very helpful in preparation.

  • History textbooks for Classes VI and VII, as well as XI and XII (NCERTs), encompass ancient and mediaeval history, which should be studied to lay a solid basis. Aside from that, the fine arts textbook for Class XI should be thoroughly studied for the art forms in question.
  • Next, read Nitin Singhania's Indian Art & Culture and reread it several times to memorise the names. Rote learning is a key component of the Art & Culture preparation plan.
  • Follow the official website of the CCRT (Centre for Cultural Resources & Training) for any significant updates, as well as the pib website for information on GI tags and other recent cultural festivals and initiatives. The CCRT website http://www.ccrtindia.gov.in/ is a particularly suggested source for preparing Performing Arts such as Drama, Theatre, Folk Dances. Also, the plethora of paintings covered on this website is commendable.

Note: NCERTs will provide a lot of information but unfortunately, you will have to consolidate the fragmented parts. Unlike Nitin Singhania’s book, NCERTs have content specific to Art and Culture very scattered. Extra effort would have to be made for that consolidation.
