IIFA is one of India’s premier institutes offering courses in a wide spectrum of visual arts. The Institute offers degree courses in Fine Art, including Fashion Design, Textile Design, Painting and Applied Art. Besides permanent faculty, visiting British teachers provide an innovative and inspiring educative experience to our students.
In May 2000, Satish and Abha Modi set up the International Institute of Fine Arts, IIFA, an institute that could nurture young artists, ignite their imagination and motivate them in the field of art and design. Their vision was to promote art and culture and provide quality education in conformity with global standards. They envisioned IIFA to be a platform that would encourage young artists to create and showcase their creations.
All their efforts have led to the fostering of a vibrant atmosphere at IIFA, and today IIFA has over 400 students studying degree courses in Fashion Design, Textile Design, Painting and Applied Art. It is affiliated to Ch. Charan Singh University, Meerut for the four-year B.F.A. course. In addition, the college also offers diplomas in Photography and an advanced diploma in Computer Graphics and 3D Animation. The new Film and Television Institute, being launched soon, will further widen the creative canvas of IIFA.
