About Department

Department of Graphic Arts:

Department started in 1950 along with the college as a subsidiary department. Later a need was felt in late sixties to start a Post Graduate Degree and Post Diploma in Printmaking. The first batch of MVA came out in 1971. Both the courses ran successfully and now admits a large number of students from all over the country.

This department is one of the most equipped printmaking department in the country to practice all methods of printmaking.The department has specialized teachers to teach Intaglio, Lithography, Relief printing, Serigraphy and Photography. The department handles the initiation programme to Art Criticism students.

In the VIII Five Year Plan the department acquired papermaking unit, which added a very important facility to experiment in a new medium. The department held a major workshop with an American artist John Babcock & this gave a lead to experimentation in this medium.
