And, it doesn't stop with the classes. As a parent, it gives me so much happiness to see my little one being happy and engaged. Thank you Nimmy.
My son Saatvik had her classes last few weeks and he loved her classes. He has learned the concepts from her and started applying them to create other artworks. Without her clear cut instructions, I don't think my little fellow would have come this far and as a parent, it is absolutely a great feeling to see the child getting so much passionate about art. Thanks to Ms. Nimmy for bringing out Saatvik's creativity and would love to keep learning from you. Thanks a lot for all Your guidance!!!!

The classes will be of 1 hour in duration, with question times in between. Some workshops are 2 hours in order to complete a complex artwork in a session.
How many students would there be in a class?
We aim to make world-class art education available to all. We use art techniques that are easier to follow in groups and it is typical to have 100 or more students in our classes. We are sure you will find our classes valuable irrespective of our attendance size and sincerely hope you will support our initiative.
What time are the classes?
There are different classes available. The timings shown on the website are in the local timezone. The class timings are available in the enrollment confirmation email that will be sent to you as soon as enrollment is confirmed.
What should I do if my child cannot attend a session(s)?
With the enrollment, you will have access to our online learning platform and the video tutorials for the month. Our video tutorials are essentially the same art instructions in a condensed form. However, we do not offer any makeup classes and cannot reschedule your class.
Can I have someone else attend with me (like a sibling or friend's child)?
Absolutely. If you are visiting a friend or if a friend is visiting you and want to attend our classes, please feel free to do so. However, we ask you not to share Zoom details with anyone else because we have specific numbers allowed for each class, and sharing the link takes a seat away from another person. This is not fair to others who may not be able to get into the online class in spite of having paid for it.
Do you have any sibling discounts?
Yes. If the siblings are in the same age group, they are not required to have separate enrollments. However, if they are in different age groups, please reach out to us for sibling discounts.
How will my child receive feedback from the tutor? How do I know how my kid is doing in the class?
Our students are encouraged to post their artworks on the private Facebook group to receive feedback. The group is safe, private, and restricted to students only. If more attention is required we will reach out through FB messenger or email. Also, if a parent wishes to get 1:1 feedback, they are encouraged to do so by scheduling feedback time.
Do you record the classes?
We value the privacy of our students and patrons and therefore we never record the Zoom classes. The video tutorial provided is painstakingly created by producing the artwork and illustrating each step before the class. But it all worth it because our students benefit from it.
Do you have referral rewards?
Our referral program offers a reward of $5 for each referral who enrolls with us.
The rewards are paid out as Amazon Gift Cards at the end of the month.
