Drawing is one of the major forms of expression within the visual arts.We work with pencil, pen, charcoal, pastel and ink. 



A portrait is a artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person.

Clay is highly versatile, extremely easy to work with, and the ideal modeling material for the beginners to start their journey of creativity.

Netra Center for Arts Won the YELP 2016 award for Excellence

I have been going to Netra Arts School since October'2015, & it's been a delightful experience. I have learnt a lot from Deepa. She has an excellent knowledge in arts. Her techniques are great. She helps us according to our pace. She gives the liberty to take any medium of paint & shows the techniques in that. She individually focuses on each student which is very rare!”
