Ms. Anupama from USA

This was my very first stint with online art classes. I loved every bit of the art work, especially the detailing. I'm very excited with the overall product and received many compliments from family and friends. The classes are very well structured into modules and easy to follow. Honestly, i did not expect this to be an easy ride but am thrilled with what i've been able to produce. Swarnaji is really very dedicated, diligent and specific with her feedback and at no point did i feel the necessity to sit physically in a classroom. I'm really looking forward to learning new art forms such as Tanjore and doing many more art work in the future
