About Us

The domain of art is ever fascinating. People come to this field with the aspiration of attaining money, fame and self-satisfaction. This can be made possible only through excellent knowledge of art. Because it is only through knowledge that geniuses have been able to prove themselves. This especially applies to areas that are performance-related, like music, dance, sports or painting. Excellent performance in such fields is not dependent on degrees, but on the right knowledge and the right knowledge can come only through a good teacher or a guru. This has been the rule of the world since eternity.

However, in this age of commercialization, education has become a status symbol. In such a scenario, ninety per cent of students today fail to choose the discipline of their choice, succumbing to societal pressure. A society that considers a degree as a prerequisite for a job or marriage will certainly fail to explain the presence of numerous unemployed, unmarried graduates! It merely shows the futility of joining the blind race of collecting degrees.

However, we are all social beings and hence cannot completely defy the norms of the society. Therefore, we firmly believe that though knowledge alone is sufficient to excel in the field of art, it is always better if one can complement it with a degree. In India, one can get good education in art along with a degree from any of the following institutes.

  • National Institute of Design, Ahmadabad
  • M S University of Baroda, Gujarat
  • College of Art, Delhi
  • Sir J J School of Art, Mumbai
  • Visva-Bharati University, Shantiniketan, West Bengal

It remains a fact, though, that a good student will find a teacher and knowledge no matter where one is. That is, any institute can equally help a good student in realizing one's potential.

If any aspiring artist, for any reason cannot secure a seat in any of the above mentioned esteemed institutions of the country, then one is most welcome to join Delhi Collage of Art. We leave no stone unturned to help one achieve success in the field of art. This institution has trained 10k+ students from 45 different countries in the nuances of art and helped them begin their journey on the path of success.

History stands witness to the fact that great artists have outshined their contemporaries with their brilliant art, inspite of the lack of formal education to support their place in this world. Their brilliance in art has gifted the world some of the rarest of gems ever seen. Even today, in India we see that quite a few of such gifted artists lose sight of their future in the mundane intricacies of University and College rules. Their aspirations squashed before they have reached their destination.

Delhi Collage of Art (DCA) is an institute on a mission to help such innumerable unrecognized artists; refine and sharpen their skills to perfection. The institute seeks to provide an extensive range of training in the least amount of time, with the use of the most modern techniques and facilities. In the past 27 years, thousands of students have passed through these doors to excel in varied streams of art and have made successful careers for themselves. The training at DCA not only provides you success as a painter but also helps you establish your career in the fields of Applied Art, Sculpture, 2D-3D Animation, Graphic & Web designing, Art Teaching, Photography, & Concept Art.

A painting is a degree by itself and its intricate details, the mark sheet. An artist is judged as a master by studying these intricate details. Today we see a lot of artists who have achieved their success solely based on their talent and not by the scroll of degree they hold.

The guidance of a good teacher is worth more than 100 universities. Your success depends on that one correct decision you make today!

D.C.A. wishes you a bright future.
