The Independent Design School aspires to challenge the boundaries of creativity by offering its students innovative approaches to education that prepares them for careers in Interior Design and Arts. NSDA’s learner-centric curriculum and pedagogy is one of the most unique propositions of the Institute.

Nirmaan School of Design & Arts stands by the belief that identifying a design solution is an intellectual process of undeniable value. NSDA is distinct in a way that it was conceived with the commitment to provide internationally paralleled design education in India and an earnest desire to help students fall in love with learning Interior Design again.

We are also committed to provide different courses for Interior Designing and turn the one into a world class Interior designer.

The Institute conducts course for their B.Voc., Advance Diploma And Diploma programs in Interior Designing. 

The school encourages various unique activities and workshops along with the regular educational classes such that the students maintain equilibrium with the contemporary.

Sameer Bhitale
Role in NSDA- Permanent faculty – Arts

All art expressed in terms of aesthetics is called fine art. The best of them is painting, through which human beings express their feelings. For this I always try to give the beginning of painting i.e. point, line, shape, color and the basic elements of how to use them. Using which students can express their feelings more effectively.

I put my heart and soul into my work and I have lost my mind in the process.
