“I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist. Teaching might even be the greatest since the medium is human mind and spirit.”
says John Steinbeck.
The mark of any school lies in the quality of values it delivers to the rest of the world. These values must always be solid, ethical professional and positive. But when it comes to Arts and Design: these values must be aesthetically appealing too. This is what everyone looks to have in an Art school and this is how we differentiate from others.
What makes an Art School, industry benchmark? Talented and highly qualified faculty with modern pedagogy are some of the fundamentals that attract quality students, as we enroll. It also ensures that when one complete his/her education with us, earn the most rewarding jobs. This, quite simply, is what we offer at Rawalpindi Institute of Art and Design. And that is what sets us apart from the crowd.
