Course programme

The natural world around us is full of objects shapes, sizes, forms, colours and lines. Perhaps this fired the imaginations of our ancestors to represent them in sketches and paintings. Slowly the human mind started making images out of its own feelings in its mind and started drawing fantastic imagery on canvass. Thus to paint even abstract forms the journey begins by looking at nature first and represent them on canvass. The course is designed to give expression to one's visual thoughts on canvass. To be able to develop drawing skills one will go through various exercises that will improve their skills to represent the nature made designs on paper. Textures and colour will be added later to the practice so as you grow as an artist to represent your mental images batter. Slowly one will explore own emotional images and start representing them with brush. This will help in bringing out the creative self in the person which is hugely therapeutic in nature. This re-connection with ones creative self within will manifest in other areas of one's life.
