The Singapore Indian Fine Arts Society was founded in the year 1949 and has completed now 62 years of establishment. The Society is devoted to the teaching of the classical arts in a non-formal environment. It began humbly, with just 12 members. Today it has a Principal, 25 full time teachers, over 2047 members and about 1,935 students with a pan-Indian curriculum that reflects the cultural diversity of a vast country with an ancient heritage .Developing and sustaining that curriculum has been one of the greatest challenges for the Society so far, but one which has yielded many benefits. It has fostered homegrown talent and created an awareness and understanding of the Indian cultural heritage, particularly valuable in the multi-ethnic Singapore.
