Department of Design and Arts

The Department of Design & Arts (DDA) strive to produce world class artists and designers who may with their skill and knowledge, redefine the way we perceive art across India as well as in abroad. Our highly qualified faculties create and foster additional reflection on the instructional framework that will most effectively support students’ learning in art and design through creative practices. We represent a new direction for art education, identifying a more in-depth understanding of art and design education. The most substantial change involves the definition of art and design education as the study of visual thinking – including design, visual communications, visual culture, and fine/studio art. The guide provides local, statewide, and national examples in each of these areas to the reader. The overall framework offered suggests practice beyond traditional modes and promotes a more constructivist approach to learning. Students are encouraged to share in the educational path as a partner in the educational process. The arts and creativity matter, and DDA support districts through our fine arts and creativity education consultant. This report is a resource for all who are interested in establishing, enhancing, and promoting the arts and creativity in new schools.

Design Defined 

The meaning of the word “design” has changed over the centuries, but design has existed since human beings picked up rocks and carved them for use as tools used to identify the attributes of a wide range of artistic, creative products distinct from fine art, visual communication, and visual culture.

Fashion Design

Fashion Design is one of the most essential industries in our world today. Style has become one of the primary ways in which people express their personality and in which they distinguish themselves from those around them. With every New Year which comes and goes new fashions arrive on the scene and they all endeavor to be more colorful and fashionable than those which saw last year. The desire to express one is something which was present all through human history.

People of all ages are addicted to new trends in the world of fashion. There is a tremendous amount of competition within the industry and also among consumers. The style is also different among different cultures and nationalities, and this is why it’s so exciting when one travels to various parts of the planet to observe first-hand how people dress in those countries.
