Bali recently inaugurated its first school dedicated exclusively to studying the elements of design. Sekolah Desain Bali (SDB) or the Bali School of Design is located in Denpasar at Jalan Raya Sesetan No. 248.
Headed by Drs. Ida Bagus Pangdjaya, the school offers a one year diploma for the general public and a number of specialized short courses focusing on special areas of design.
The school receives financial backing from the Yayasan Kesejahteraan Korpri Propinsi Bali - an organization dedicated to improving the welfare of civil servants.
The SDB offers a curriculum that is a 20% mix of theory, 30% focus on computer skills, and 50% hand-on practical experience. Among the courses offered are graphic design, product design, interior design, fashion design, and art design.
The founders of the school hope to provide an alternative education for those who, for whatever reasons, are unable to pursue a college degree in the field of design while also providing important training and development opportunities to Bali's many local artists and craftsmen.
