Why we love this?
Very often art classes involve copying famous works or reproducing an object or scenery placed in front of us and a test is to see how accurately it was replicated.
We believe Art is expression & Art is for everyone. This course is designed to make you probe, think, research and understand the artistic creative process that leads to an original output through your own self exploration and expression of one’s personal narrative.
