25000+ Students Enrolled

I had a great and awesome experience with RCIFA. I have done 3 years Diploma course from here. RCIFA’s environment and the experience which I gained from here converted my hobby into my passion. I have learnt a lot from all the faculty members. They give full freedom to their students to learn what they want and always encourage them to develop their own style. After creating my own style, I did my first solo show in RCIFA gallery and the opening ceremony day was the day which changed my life. Thanks RCIFA from the bottom of my heart for providing me a platform to enhance my skills and helping me to exhibit my works in India as well as in California, USA.

Roop Chand Institute of fine arts is not mere and institution for me . This institute has become my family where at any given time i can go and ask my doubts, discuss goals of my life . Not only i cleared my entrence exam for college of art under the guidence of qualified faculty but also got various opportunities to show case my self. Opportunities which might be dreams for many at such young age.
I exhibited my work at Kala mela(lalit kala akademi), A.I.F.A.C.S, Indian habitat centre, Visual art gallery and recived gold medal from Pyarelal bhawan.
This institute has held hands of every child who came seeking a future in art and wanted to follow passion. It was through sir i could attend an auction at saffron art at avery young age of 24 which can be a dream come true for any budding or any artist to see a painting getting sold in front of your eyes of a master like Akabar padmshrree. I could not sleep for many night, a seed of being an artist was sown. What ever i have or will achive in future the credit will always be incomplete with out Roop chand institute of fine arts.
