Art as an expression for adults can be a relief, an opportunity to re-activate, strengthen and increase an existential joy. Arts for adults denotes a particular way of seeing the human being, a unique life philosophy, a vision of what is most precious for a person. Appreciating art within the society offers an axiological dimension of this society, of its attitude and axiological refinement. Expression of art leads to new horizons because it fosters an inquiring and reflective spirit and it offers a superior meaning to life itself. Art as an expression has its own benefits like it helps relieving mental stress, teaches new skills, fosters social connections and more.In this beginners course, we aim to lay foundation with various tools and techniques that invigorates the artist within you and prepares you for the basics of visual art ie. sketching drawing and use of colours.

The segment includes Still life compositions of inanimate Objects and fruits and flowers with detailing on 3D proportions and shadowing.
Semester 4 (24 Sessions) : We will begin with learning the anatomy of the face by drawing front, side, diagonal profiles of the basic face structure. Once that is achieved, we will break down each parts individually to understand the dimensions and detailing that are required while making the complete face as a whole. This semester will be about polishing the basic learning and practising rigorously to achieve portraits that look absolutely realistic and learning various facial expressions and emotions. We will be experimenting a kids portrait as well as a adult portrait to understand the difference between the technical requirements while drawing different age groups. We will also be looking at the hiccups that the students might face while drawing as every individual has different learning capacities.
