What is Art & Design Foundation?
At Sriguruji Art Academy, we have been conducting drawing and art and craft classes very successfully since its inception in 2003. Our focus has been the classical form of art and its education. Since 2014 we have started conducting a specially designed program called, Art and Design Foundation.
Based on a pedagogy on the evolutionary learning process of mankind, here A-R-T represents, awareness, response and technique. This pedagogy is a result of a research done by Mr. Mahendra Damle, a painter and teacher with 23 years of experience in the field of art, architecture, animation, design, dramatics, fashion and textile design & sculpture.

The Learning Journey
The curriculum is very well defined for 1st to 12th standard students. Beginners get introduced to the concepts such as shape, line, image making and contouring. They are encouraged to observe and visualise and break it down to shapes to represent it on paper easily. Students learn to handling art tools, art mediums and understanding colors. They learn to draw landscapes, objects and human figures.
Intermediate students are taught to create space illusion in a picture through the concept of three dimensions. They learn idea and formula of perspective and drawing things from various points of views. This helps them understand proportions. They also dabble in history of Indian and western tribal art.
Typography, principals of design, sketching, understanding art and design as a language of communication is what Advance students learn. By this time they become aware of their inclination towards particular professions. Art becomes a tool for this discovery.
The training provided is such that students are automatically readied for Elementary exams, Intermediate exams, and competitive evaluations such as NID, CEED, NATA, NIFT entrance exams.
