2 year Studio Based Program


Srishti’s vision is to nurture art and design practitioners who are creative, sensitive, empathetic, and are able to deal with the interdisciplinary nature of work as it occurs in the real world.

The Studio-based Program provides multiple approaches for experiencing and practicing these objectives.

This is an immersive space where students learn new skills and embark on new ways of thinking. It enables students to acquire fundamental concepts, skills, languages of expression, and ethical guidelines that underline professional practice.

Constantly adapting, rethinking and questioning what is learnt is implicit in the learning process of the Studio-based program.
Through its many components it allows for experiential learning, experimentation, and interaction with the real world.

The Studio component provides core skills, while the Charette gives students the opportunity to apply this learning in multiple contexts. In the Workshop they practice their craft skills.
General Studies give students a broad knowledge base, and equip them to deal with complexity, diversity and change.

The Interim Semester is an exciting space where students work intensively alongside contemporary artists from around the world.

Srishti Interim projects are contemporary art projects built into the curriculum as an ‘Interim’ semester since 2004, to nurture emerging creative talent through experimentation and collaboration. It is an open ended framework for learning through engagement with artistic practice. It connects with the creative processes of researching, reproducing, documenting, collecting, intervening, collaborating, experimenting, producing and presenting.

Internships introduce students to the professional working environment.

Combined together, these components make up the Studio-Based Program at Srishti. It comprises Year 2 and 3 of the Professional Diploma Program.
