  • Secondary, Senior Secondary, UG and higher degree students cutting across the subject streams (including Engineering & Medical) looking for advancing their skill set to help with the drawing aspects of their school curriculum or to ease the transition entering a full time academic program in Art & Design.

  • Current and aspiring Art Teachers looking for a career progression or begin a career in Arts.

  • Working Professionals, Business owners, Homemakers and Seniors, reviving their passion for art, which they couldn't pursue so far due to their other prioirities in life or taking some personal time out from the humdrum daily life sometimes as a meditative excercise to lower the stress levels.

  • And many others who enrol simply to enjoy learning a new skill.
