"IDSVA's unique curriculum has enabled me to develop as an artist, scholar, and human being. The school's distinctive residency programme and course of study that intersects philosophy and art has not only extended the horizons of my intellectual and creative possibilities, but has endowed me with a range of skills vital for practicing in today's dynamic world."
