Why we love this?
Art is expression. Art is for everyone. A passion for art is known to have created a great momentum in many a successful artists life.
Apparao galleries has been in the business of promoting artists for three and a half decades . The secret garden studio is an extension of the Apparao galleries outreach programme to allow art lovers to have the real physicality of creativity while allowing artists an interaction with the public. The studio is designed to provide a rustic and artistic setting amongst nature to enhance the learning experience for students.
Be it as a profession, hobby, or therapy, AGS will impart training and skill to allow participants to pursue art either as a profession or as a fun exercise.
