Fine Arts education is an integral part of the development of human being. It refers to the education in the disciplines of performing and visual arts. With the rising demand for artists in both professional and academic areas, avenues of their employability are growing with the Indian arts industry emerging parallel to the mainstream industries.
IGNOU is a frontrunner in identifying opportunities and designing suitable programmes to meet the variety of demands of the student community. The idea of a School of Performing and Visual Arts at IGNOU was initiated in 2007. It finally took shape in February 2009 when the school became fully functional with the newly inducted faculty.
The School works with the following objectives:
- To promote aesthetics as a learning process in the professional and academic arena.
- To appeal to the senses or emotions.
- To inculcate creativity through the diverse range of creative activities and modes of expression.
