Vocational aspects of Fine Arts education evolves around the assimilation of knowledge of various skills, methods and materials including the traditional and modern aspects. The teacher and the taught  delve into understanding related fine arts such as music, dance, theatre,  the media of film, architecture and  literature. Study of History of Art and Aesthetics, both Oriental and Western are a main part of the learning. Knowledge of multi-media application on Fine Art, mixed-media techniques and its effects on visual language, appreciation of art and the fundamentals of visual art are other areas of research.


Understanding the fact that art education is a continuous process, the student is guided towards awareness  of the changing social, political scenario; its effect on art education and its application on society, which is followed by the trends, languages and function of the new/unconventional mediums.

To add impetus to the technical aspect of the qualification on the whole, an awareness is also created to study the relationship with Industry through internship. Upgrading of curriculum/ labs etc from time to time as per the requirement, outsourcing expertise, formulation of guide lines to both the teacher and the student in the teaching programs for the academic session are other areas where there is constant review and positive action taken.
