Message from Mr. Batsa Gopal Vaidya
Born in 2001 AD, as a collective brain child of the few like minded artists and the Art educationists then, Srijana College of Fine Arts today, has traversed a long way since to become a leading non-profit community Art College. Begun in a very humble way, but since the day one we never failed to dream big- to turn it into a premier center for higher learning in Art.
In many respects, we have attained it. Begun with a modest number of students-with less than two difits, we stand proud today, numerically, with more than three hundred plus students and more than forty faculty members. Academically, the excellence of our education system is well reflected by the highest score achieved by our students consecutively almost every year in Bachelor's Degree (BFA) exams under the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Tribhuvan University.
In terms of scope for studies too, we have expanded and continue to offer number of new courses of studies- BFA programs in Graphic Communications, Traditional Painting and Traditional Sculpture- besides the BFA courses in Music and Dance.
So by every count, we are ready and poised to take off for more lofty goals: and we are well supported by a team of efficient staff and very competitive faculty. But we equally remain aware that this is no time for complacency: well aware that our constraints are too challenging- a building of our own - inadequate space and the physical infra-facilities as needed of an Art institute of our repute.
Moreover, we are in constatn dream of expanding our course of Studies to Master's Level in Fine Arts in future. We are convinced that our dream is near and attainable-given that we continue to receive, as usual, your continual support in future.

The college has reasonably a well stocked library- with a specialized focus. It has an impressive collection of books on Art of Painting, Sculpture, Graphic Communications and Dance/Music etc. The students constantly avail the facility for their references purposes in studies and paper writings.
The college has professionals with long and respectable teaching experiences in their respective fields. Moreover, some of the faculty also has the privilege of being the eminent personas in their respective genres of Arts in the country.
As the college aims to transform each of the students into a celebrity, eventually - in future, it has made visions to familiarize students with all the practicalities of public exposures. And it entails many skills after their graduations.
Accordingly therefore, the college has created a space as a display hall - an Art Gallery. Moreover, the college also houses one of the renowned Art Galleries in the town- Srijana Contemporary Art Gallery. Here, they can gain first- hand practical experience to exhibit works.
The College has various scholarship schemes and awards for the deserving students. The scholarships are named after the eminent artists of the country who have had remarkable contributions in the evolution of Nepali Art.
