Arts & Crafts

 

        Arts and Crafts are the soul of Indian Heritage and Culture. Each region of India, have their own unique features. Our Diploma Course came into being, after discussion with a number of eminent Personalities. They found that Students with countless skills and creativity, missed the opportunity of exploring the Artistic Treasures buried in their own spiritual backyard.
         An understanding of medium, materials and their intrinsic qualities, is as relevant to Arts & Crafts today, as it has been in the past. This Course is intended to introduce and enhance the Techniques commonly employed by Craftsmen and Artists. These include timeless traditions to neoteric Craftsmanship.
         These of Course cannot be seen as an end in themselves. A poor or ill-considered idea shall not be rescued by crafty artistry. The Students are hence taught to explore their imagination with the knowledge of Techniques and Materials.
           They then begin to understand the symbolic relationship between the creative and temperamental processes, within the Field. It must be added Students joining here are expected to only have an artistic interest in working with their hands.An Artistic bacground is not necessary.
