Combining studio work with academic studies, the BS (Honours) programme is especially designed for those students who want to get a specialised degree in fine arts and design. The development of the students is enriched by a combination of intense studio experience and study of the liberal arts.

SADA aims at providing the students with creative and technical skills needed to thrive in today’s fast-changing art and design world. After graduating from the School, the students will leave with professional-level portfolios of well-crafted design and artwork that will provide them with a solid foundation for their careers. The courses are taught by a faculty of established artists and art critics, and comprise lectures, rigorous studio work and field trips.
In addition to spacious brand new classrooms, there are several large, all-purpose studios and painting classrooms with professional lighting and easels, and a prop room containing items and fabrics for still life compositions.
