USP of the Department

The UG and PG programmes provides a studio-based education in the practice and theory of contemporary art. This enables students to develop their capacity for creative practice and to gain an understanding of the contextual and critical thought on which it is based. The Bachelor of Visual Arts at the GEHU includes courses from the Art History and Theory programme and other undergraduate programmes, providing students with a broader liberal arts education. We encourage students to develop an individual art practice through sustained engagement with a particular creative process, involving research, experimentation, innovation, synthesis, analysis, and presentation. We also work to make graduate students’ performance befitting of research, analysis and criticism of the history and paintings from different historical periods and schools. Above all, a Visual Arts education encourages students to be self-reflective, critically responsive, and innovative contributors to the world in which they live. We offer a wide range of courses, small and large, introductory, advanced and undergraduate all of which focus on the passion and pleasures of sketching, painting, sculpting, design of various subjects. It develops the student’s ability, creativity and mastering of techniques.
