hello! of course you can take painting as a profession, in fact painting is having so much exploration in future and there are few universities who provide such courses which deal with professional paintings.


yes the course named BFA (Bachelor of fine arts) is a professional painting course.. One can opt for this course by fulfilling very minimal eligibility criteria ... In brand names like DU, GGSIPU AND JAMIA ( Dirct admission is difficult).... But in large and private universities the entry is not tough at all. amity, gna and lovely professional provide this course only meeting minimal criteria- 33 per cent only in 12 th with no entrance test with placement benefits.. All the best........

Hi Manan.. Painting is becoming a profession rather than once hobby now. Many more students are enrolling
in course in Fine arts and learning their inbuilt talent in a technological way and then becoming professional
painters. Thats why a number of institutes are which offers courses in Painting and in other arts. Some of such
institutes are Jamia Milia Islamia, Delhi University, Lovely Professional University, Apeejey Institute etc.
