The course in Fine Art deals with the creation and study of visual art. Students of Fine Art study and train to become successful artists and understand other areas that are associated with the creation of art. The program places a lot of demands on the student’s individual potential as well as imagination. The chief aim of many of the Fine Arts students is to become professional artists. However, there are other areas and opportunities also available to them such as working in visual effects in film making. Based on this, the structure and components of the program are aimed at enhancing the students’ imagination and knowledge in such a way that other avenues can also be followed. Although many graduates later go on to graduate studies in Fine Art, some students also continue to work in other related subjects.
main requirements for admission
One of the main requirements for admission is portfolio submission. While there is no actual prescribed format or essentials for the portfolio, it should be assembled in such a way as to showcase their interests and tastes in art. The portfolios could comprise of original works, photographs, slides or digital images of paintings and sculptures, personal notebooks, short videotapes or CDs, drawings, sound-works and so on. Abilities in analytical and creative discussion and a strong visual curiosity are other prerequisites.
Studio work and practical lessons
Studio work with regular inputs from staff, tutor and peers is along with attendance in workshops, and projects to introduce the student to a wide range of methods and techniques to art. Practical lessons in drawing and human anatomy are conducted side by side with lectures, seminars and tutorials in art history. The student is encouraged to try his hand in the various mediums and try out his interests and ideas. Three essays, one exam in art history are the assessments for this year.
The other two years also follow more or less the same pattern as the first. Art theory is another subject of study in these years. Three essays have to be submitted in the second year too. In the final year, however, the student is expected to submit an extended essay that would form part of the final assessment. The high-light of these years is a final exhibition and a supporting portfolio of work prepared during the second and third years. There are also written exams on Art History at the end of the final year. This paper would cover the history of art from the year 1900 up to the present.
