Digital technology looks at how technology has impacted on the art industry.
Apart from theoretical knowledge being imparted to the students, the curriculum is also designed in such a way that it covers practical elements of the arts industry.

Studio practice also constitutes practical learning to the students of art. This gives them exposure to various elements that characterize the creative world. This also helps the students to experience reality in the art industry rather than relying on theoretical knowledge only. The students are also taught practical skills that can help them to perform various tasks in the film animation industry.
