Art and design is a broad term encompassing graphic design, information design, instructional design, visual storytelling and various products of cultural and visual information. Art is a diverse range of human activities in creating visual, auditory or performing artwork for expressing the author's imaginative, conceptual idea, or technical skill, intended to be appreciated for their beauty or emotional power.
The Institute of Art and Designwas started in 2007. Initially, the Department started the program of BS Fine Arts, which was highly appreciated and welcomed by the people of the region. Gradually, the Department of Fine Arts progressed and within a short span of one year, MA Fine Arts program was started. Keeping in view the increasing demand, the Institute initiated new programs like BS Textile Design in 2012 and BS Graphic Design in 2014. All programs at the Institute aimed at developing an understanding of the personal and cultural forces that shape artistic communication which could bring healthy changes in cultural trends.
The institute has the guidance and supervision of three MPhil and two MFA qualified professionals. It provides every student with a foundational instruction in the arts, and develops the natural talents in those who have a special inclination for the arts and design. The overall objective of the Institute is to empower their students to succeed not only in Design and Visual Arts but to provide them with the confidence to excel in many endeavors with the positive self-image developed through participation in the arts.
