  • The prices are fixed and I don’t offer any discount. No compromise on the quality of teaching.
  • No previous experience in art is required. The only prerequisite is that you should have keen interest in art with sufficient time to practice. In these classes, you are not competing with anyone. You are exploring your latent creative ability. It is expected that participant will independently complete all assignments and do regular practice at home, along with the structured classes.
  • Answer is Yes. Some people do have innate abilities, and thus can naturally perform better than others in a particular subject. They have intense interest in the subject, and progressively improve their skills with uninterrupted practice. But talent can be also be learnt and developed by those considered untalented. They can also achieve similar results with regular practice. The fact is that people are often more creative than they think. It’s said if you can write, you can draw as well. Everyone can learn to draw and paint, and they do it extremely well. Spending time with an artist can help you to unlock your artistic abilities and the required skills to accomplish an artwork. You can learn to draw by drawing, which can be achieved by experimenting with art material.

  • Ask: Participant can take a feedback about his art work and thereby improve upon
