Department of Fine Arts

The eminent founder Dr. Alagappa Chettiar's interest towards classical music and traditional dance has paved the way for the emergence of the department of fine arts in Alagappa University. A certificate and a diploma course have been started under the department of women studies in the year 2002. Due to the recognition and response for such courses, a centre for fine arts has been inaugurated in the year 2011. Those courses have been taught under the centre for fine arts from the same year. The commendable outcome reassigned the centre in to the department of fine arts in the year 2016. The response from the students and the support from the management are the reasons for such a transformation from the courses into a department.

The students who completed their diplomas started teaching Bharathanatyam and Music in various schools and colleges. Some of them started teaching individuals or a small group in their own house even denying any amount as fees. Some of the post graduate diploma holders have joined in the undergraduate courses directly in the second year.

The department also offers certificate and diploma courses in Bharathanatyam, Music, and Instrumental in which age is no bar. Right from the age of ten, anyone interested can join and learn in the above courses.

DAWN OF THE CENTRE

The Centre for Fine Arts has been inaugurated by Padmabushan Dr.Padma subramaniam on 4th February 2011. The other Chief guests are former Vice-chancellor Prof.S.Sudalaimuthu, Dance critic Mr.B.M.Sundaram, Kundarakudi Aathinam Ponambala Adikalar and Pitchai Gurukkal Sivachariyar from pillaiyarpatti.
