It is the goal of the Fine Arts Club to bring an active awareness and appreciation of the fine arts on campus and in the community of IITK. Through the creative and intellectual stimulus of student-initiated events, FAC strives to engage, inspire and motivate everyone to participate in the fine arts at IITK. The club is headed by 4 Coordinators, usually students in their third year of study.

There are around 20-25 Secretaries who work with the Coordinators to ensure smooth conduction of all the activities. They are responsible for the publicity of the events. Usually the secretaries are Undergraduate Sophomores. Other than these people the club has members who participate in various activities conducted by the club and can issue/borrow paints and other materials if they are interested.
