Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) is an extremely creative course with a duration of four years. The course crucially requires a personal interest in art, and skills like sketching and drawing are highly appreciable. The Program molds students to develop skills and knowledge to work in the dynamic and demanding environment of the design industry.
The program prepares the students for establishing a career in the field of Fine arts. The degree will require an area of specialty such as computer animation, drawing, creative writing, film production, animation, visual effects, illustration, graphic design, industrial design, visual arts, technical arts, interior design, metalworking, new media, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, stage management, or television production. At VIFT we offer our students specialization in three disciplines of arts i.e. Applied Arts, Painting and Textile designing.
Structure of the Program:
First Year Foundation
The first year is the elementary year wherein the foundation of design is laid. An In-depth Foundation is built with introduction to Inter-related Subjects including Drawing, Design, Color, 2D & 3D Design, Clay Modelling, Aesthetics and Concepts of Art. The ideology of the course is to create an awareness in students about the principles of visual and design experience so that the knowledge and expertise can be accelerated during the specialization from next year.
Second, Third & Fourth Year Specialization
At VIFT we offer three specializations from second year. A student can choose from any of the three discipline based on the interest. The basic knowledge undertaken is as follows.
Applied Art is fundamentally a subject which undertakes various forms of correspondence through a forum which are technical and economic. Emphasis is laid on the growth of a nature which would enable the student to apprentice his individuality to a mutual effort. The new technologies have become a problem solver and have all opened up many avenues. On the basis of this understanding, the objective of training is focused on expansion of creative ability and professional skills through thorough study of subjects such as Drawing & Illustration, Design and Subsidiary subjects such Press Layout, Poster Design, History of Art, Photography, Advertising Theory techniques, Aesthetics, Campaign study and Computer Application software.
Students will be introduced to the options within their chosen Art, Communication or Design discipline. The sole aim of the course is to provide with an understanding of the industry requirements by making each student’s knowledge and implementation skills through exposure to professional and technical examples. This is for students who are very confident in their future direction and have the ability to express their ideas through art that can be commercialized in professional way.
Textile students are given exposure about various aspects of textiles be it fibers, yarns or fabric. Students learn to identify textiles and its composition. The course provides basic knowledge in weaving, knitting, dyeing, printing and finishing. The course not only covers the technical part but also designing and motif development.
