The principle of true art is not to portray, but to evoke’

-Jerzy Kosinski 

Today’s world relies more on visual presentation, be it filmmaking, advertising, or gaming. Students with a passion and vision for the arts and animation can choose visual arts as a career option. The success of animated films (such as Star Wars, Baahubali, PK, Life of Pi, etc.) has influenced the career preference of many with more students looking out for a career where they can express their ideas visually with great influence. A Visual Artist is a broad phrase which encompasses various portfolios such as animators, game developers, multimedia artists, digital compositors, and graphic designers.

Pursuing a course in Visual Arts allows the students to channel their creativity and imagination in the right direction and make their message more expressive through animation. Aimed at enabling students to apply their technical skills and knowledge to develop various forms of creative expression, Manav Rachna International Institute of Research and Studies offers Bachelor of Visual Arts in three specializations: Visual Effects, Animation, and Game Development.
