      Drawing & Coloring

    We start drawing & sketching with more than 600 pictures using pencil and colors for the basic 3 levels, starting from students of age 4. This basic drawing will be helpful for the students in doing paintings or in their school subject's drawings. Good in drawing is useful for the students to improve their hand writing, as well as to save time in examinations .Drawing practices will grow patience, self confidence and Sharpness in the children's mind and will prevent them from other activities like video gaming , chatting and browsing by simply sitting in front of the computers and other muddy friendships. Today's competitive world, drawing sense is very essentials for higher studies like Engineering, Multimedia, Visual Communication, BFA, BA- Visual Arts, Fashion Design etc.

Students of age from 4 to 10 may join in this course and after completing these courses, it's better to join in other painting courses like Watercolor, Acrylic, oil, Pot and etc.

      Good Sketching

    For a good Drawing or Painting, we need a good sketch and it is the backbone of a Drawing or a Painting. How can we get a good sketch? The only answer is 'Regular Practice'. When we are doing regular practice on portraying figures, portraits, birds, animals, landscapes, seascapes, buildings and street scenes, we can get quick sketches with a wide range of pictures Our Classes and courses are easy to practice, and will take the students to a higher end in sketching of various art forms. Our step by step instructions improve the sketching skills of the student and handling all type of pencils and papers We are not running hobby classes like others, we keep a syllabus and our masters are from commercial / professional side with years of service in this art world.

      Shading & Coloring

    Shading is the next step, by which one can expose his/her creativity in using pencils & oil pastels, different shades, strokes, dots, and lines in black and white or in color to showcase the pre-drawn sketch.. In this stage we can find and judge the artistic touch, creative idea, perfection, coloring sense, finishing style of the student. After this, one can enter into the dream world of art, the 'Painting'.


    Water Color
    Oil Color
    Acrylic Color

      Water Color Painting

    Water Color is a beautiful and challenging medium, and it's transparent washes and luminous colors are ideal for creating. When the colors go down on the paper they can be a joy of behold. One can say Water Color Painting is a toughest painting, but in our point of view, it is an easy medium, when practiced with involvement and techniques, and that's why we are giving much preference to water color among students. In our Water Color Workshop, we are providing step by step lessons with lot of tips and techniques, which make them becoming national level artists. Students, who are 10 years old may join in this Water Color Painting Course with moderate fees structure We hope, beginners will get proper guidance and training, away from the mire and muddy path.

      Acrylic Painting

    Painting is one of the most rewarding ways to artistically express yourself by learning that is a smart decision because the medium is flexible and durable. Using acrylic paint is considerably more affordable than working with oils. What is an acrylic paint? The answer is a water-soluble medium made from a synthetic resin binder mixed with pigments. The water soluble aspect of acrylic paints means that a painting dries quickly and you do not have to use solvents to dilute the paint or for cleaning brushes or a palette. But after an acrylic painting on canvas dries the surface becomes water resistant, and a canvas can be rolled up and stored with no fear of cracking or damaging. This is all in contrast to oil paints, which need to be thinned with solvents, take much longer to dry and harden as they do so, making them quite fragile and not so easily transported. Acrylic painting, for beginners, can be an exciting prospect because acrylics have so much versatility. Mediums can be added to the paints to increase luminosity or to get a matte or semi-matte finish. Acrylic pigments can also be diluted with water or a medium to create watercolorlike transparent washes. You can add mediums that thicken acrylic paint as well, which is ideal if you want more noticeable brushstrokes as you put acrylic paint on canvas.

      Oil Painting

    Do you want to paint beautiful, expressive paintings with oils? Here is our basic and master coaching to guide you into the wonderful world of oil paints. Once you've mastered the basic techniques, the world is your canvas! A combination of colors like cadmium yellow, yellow ochre, cadmium red, alizarin crimson, ultramarine blue, titanium white, and mars black, you can make any hue on the color wheel. Avoid buying "student sets" of paint, as these will seem like a good deal, but offer the poorest quality supplies. Also avoid buying sets of paint that come with paint brushes, as the brushes will not work freely You don't need many brushes to start out, but get a few of each kind. Start with differing sizes of round, flat, and bristle brushes. Oil paint is very thick directly out of the tube, and must be made thinner for the first layers using white spirits or turpentine, and a blending medium such as linseed oil or coconut oil for later layers. The rule is 'Thick on thin', and this prevents later cracking or separation of layers. An easel, an apron, a drop cloth, and some ponytail brushes are the materials you have to buy.

      Pottery Painting

    There is a long history of pottery art in almost all developed cultures, and often pottery objects are all artistic evidence left from vanished cultures, like Egyptian, Indus, Greek, Mayan and Chinese. The Elements of Pottery art are the shape of the object, its decoration by painting, carving and other methods. We encourage students to work with various styles and art forms from Indian, Greek, Persian, Chinese, Western and modern contemporary. This Pottery Painting classes are expensive than that of other painting classes. The painted pots can be easily sold out or kept in for own use.

      Glass Painting

    These days glass painting is becoming a popular feature and catching up as a hobby due to its awesome results and easy availability of glass painting equipments. Many companies launch glass painting ideas for hobbies. They can have different levels like beginners, which is basically for experimental purpose for children. Glass paintings can be used as wall hangings and painting on windows and acrylic sheets etc. Reverse painting on glass is An Art form consisting of applying paint to a piece of glass and then viewing the image by turning the glass over and looking through the glass at the image.

      Tanjore Painting

    Tanjore Painting is one of the most popular forms of classical South Indian painting. It is the native art form of Thanjavur city of Tamil Nadu. The dense composition, surface richness and vibrant colors of Indian Thanjavur Paintings distinguish them from the other types of paintings. Then, there are embellishments of semi-precious stones, pearls and glass pieces that further add to their appeal. The relief work gives them a three dimensional effect. Tanjore Painting of India originated during the 16th century, under the reign of the Cholas.

    Making of Tanjore Painting of the numerous steps involved in the making of a Tanjore Painting, the first involves drawing of the preliminary sketch of the image on the base. The base is made up of a cloth, which is pasted over a wooden base. The second step consists of mixing chalk powder or zinc oxide with water-soluble adhesive and applying it on the base. Thereafter, the drawing is made and ornamented with cut glass, pearls and even semi-precious stones. Laces or threads may also be used to decorate the painting. To further augment the effect, wafer thin sheets of gold are pasted in relief on some parts of the painting, while the other parts are painted in bright colors.
