The College has had 44 years of successfully training the best professional
artists and designers in this region. We train students to fully understand
their profession and to understand that they will be the agents of change
in the years to come. As artists, they will be the conscience of the
society and the torch bearers of aesthetics and beauty.
As designers they will shape the future.
We ask them to know their craft so well, that their ideas can be expressed
clearly, creatively, instantly and on demand. As designers, they will
solve problems that affect the way people think, work, play, spend their
money or change their habits. Our curriculum establishes first the broader
understanding of fundamentals, then as their goal becomes apparent,
organized study is focused on the particular area the students decide
to pursue. Our major studies are those for which there are careers for
None of what we are doing could have happened without the struggle and
vision of Mrs. Anna Molka Ahmad, the founder of the Department of Fine
Arts. She established this Institute in 1940 and made it the beacon
of Art activity in the country. Her students and graduates took up assignment
as art teachers in almost all the colleges of Pakistan and introduced
this discipline even in small towns and localities, where it used to
be considered a taboo. We have gratitude and admiration for her spirit
and strength of purpose.
We feel we are perpetuating the mission she held dear, and we know that
our strength lies in maintaining the standards she set.
