Diploma in Fine Art

Searching Beyond Visual Language

The Diploma in Fine Art offers study of Fine Art as an educational process which provides opportunities for the students to develop creative skills and visual language to probe reality and express through the tangibility of form.

The academic programme which stresses critical and creative thinking along with strong studio-based studies, also offers the students an opportunity to examine the challenging human values and search for individual meaning in the form of contemporary or historical context.

The course begins with intensive work in drawing, painting, printmaking, figure drawing and non-traditional experimental projects to expose the students to the visual language necessary for them to explore and realize their individual artistic development.

Advanced and in-depth studies are implemented progressively to enable the students to develop skills and techniques, and to express their ideas, perceptions, imaginations, responses and creativity.
