NEW! Art with the Artists Batch for Adults

Categorized Under: Latest News, Modules Grown Up Dated: 05 July 2018 No Commented
There is an artist within all of us – restless, confused, bouncing off the walls in a padded cell deep within us. You know it – you’ve felt its sharp pangs all your life. When you look at a work of art, or an artist at work, and just wish that you could paint like that; when, out of the blue, you find yourself wondering where you’d be today if you’d pursued your passion in childhood; when you buy sketchbooks or colours on sheer impulse.

But what does one do? Art is not a joke: it requires time, practice and guidance. At this age, who will teach us drawing and painting? With our busy work schedule, is there time to try painting at all? While we hesitate, and fear, and wonder, the artist in us continues to languish in its cage.

2018 is the year when the artist in you finds release. Art with the Artists is a workshop that provides you with the thrill of experimentation, the freedom of artistic expression and the skills to capture beauty in all its forms.

Art with the Artists is a 10-week course where our expert faculty will teach you basic techniques and guide you in the usage of several art materials: Watercolour, Oil, and Acrylic and Terracotta in addition to an introduction to the ThemesStyles and Techniques of landmark  world artists. All materials used at the workshop will be provided by us. Our faculty consists of Artists and Art experts who will impart their skills and experience to the participants in an easy, hands-on manner. The skills and techniques that you acquire at this course will enable you to pursue art at any level of your choosing. The course also has a very special feature, an on-site art history + practical art session to be conducted at Kanheri Caves, nestled inside Sanjay Gandhi National Park.

Art with the Artists is a unique opportunity to learn skills in art that will last you a lifetime. The workshop is open to all – irrespective of prior skill or experience. Let go the artist within you!
