Netra Arts Studio - Foster City

Painting is taught in all mediums and techniques based on the interest and skill level of the student. Classes are taught with an emphasis on unlocking the student’s creativity while also helping develop their motor skills (for toddlers and younger kids). Students are introduced to the magnificent world of colors, color palettes, color charts and the art of mixing and matching colors to create unique colors and color effects. All art supplies are provided by the Studio.

Colored Clay Modeling

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. 

Take a break from the hustle and bustle.

Take a beautiful journey into the world of colors with your friends


We all love this place

“My son loves the art class and we are always impressed by with the art projects he bring home. The owner Deepa is a loving, creative, and competent artist. She has students in all ages, and she has a true gift for making everyone feel artistic and truly talented, which I think is very important for young kids. Keep up the awesome work, Deepa! We all love this place.”

Her teaching is very inspiring!

“Deepa is a very knowledgeable teacher. She'll ask you first what you'd like to learn, what drawing/painting techniques. You can choose to draw or paint with oil, acrylic or other materials, it's up to you. You can draw or paint your own ideas and she'll guide you through. Her teaching is very inspiring and she is pleasant person to learn from.”
