The Art School
With a vision of providing high-quality art education that caters to one’s capabilities and isn’t only student-centric but also deals with individuals of various age groups and professions, Mrs Tarang Jain decided to establish a space that provides the joy of art through multiple mediums to people from various walks of life—which led to the creation of Artiste360 - The Art School.
Artiste360 is created to cultivate alternative classrooms that are open-minded and encourage experimentation. We cater to a variety of students who belong to different backgrounds, age groups and professions. We want to re-establish the fact that you can continue learning art no matter how far you have strayed from it and where in your life you might be. Our programs aren’t only aimed at beginners but also those who have prior experience in art and wish to enhance their skillset.
All our courses are curated by our team keeping in mind—after research—what is missing and how we can make use of minimum time to maximise the student’s efficiencies. The faculty recruited comes from the best of national and international art colleges and they bring in a wide range of specialisations
