Importance of Fine Arts Course

Fine Arts are the making and study of visual art. It is an art form practiced mainly for its aesthetic value and its beauty rather than its functional value. Fine art is rooted in drawing and design-based works such as painting, printmaking, and sculpture. It is often contrasted with “applied art” and “crafts” which are both traditionally seen as utilitarian activities. Other non-design-based activities regarded as fine arts include photography and architecture, although the later is best understood as an applied art. It educates and prepares students to become artists and to follow other practices that are aligned to the making of art. Minerva Institute (MIMT) is a top BFA college providing Fine Arts courses in Dehradun including Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) and Masters of Fine Arts (MFA).
