Who We Are
“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” – Thomas Merton.
Children, by default, are infinitely more creative than any of us adult can ever imagine !! (even imagination requires creativity 😉 )
They are fountainheads of personal feelings, energy, observations, first time experiences and reflections. The world would be a much richer place, if even 10 % of all that comes out in form of an art. And all it requires is a spark, to ignite the flame.
Art Elixir aspires to be that spark – by not only providing them with tools, techniques and guidance to channelize their latent talent, but by providing an ambience and environment so conducive to creativity, that they will find in themselves the hidden Picasso or Da Vinci or a Rembrandt.
We also aspire to be the place where adults lose themselves by immersing themselves in creative pursuits, leaving all their professional and personal worries behind. Place where they de-stress and revitalize their selves.
Youngsters can come over to Art Elixir and prepare themselves for professional competitive entrance tests such as NID / NIFT / NATA etc that require high Creative Quotient.
And thus, we aspire to be that “elixir” in lives of kids, youngsters and adults that not only distresses, but revitalizes, rejuvenates and help them find a new, young, vibrant self – an Elixir in true sense !!
Art Elixir Activities and Courses
Certificate Courses for Drawing,
Sketching and Shading (DSS)
We start with the very basic shapes, clear lines, shading and sketching techniques before going deeper into the intricacies of detailed drawing, 1D and 2D perspective, finer aspects of shading and complicated, multidimensional drawings to make the pictures come alive.
One of the more difficult but at the same time offering virtually endless possibilities of exploring the range of colours and its shades and hues, our water colour course introduces you to the world of endless possibilities. Right for the kids as well as adults, this medium will make you fall in love with colours.
Oil on Canvas
Every aspiring artist’s dream is to be able to paint like Da Vinci, Rembrandt or Van Gogh with Oil on Canvas. Easy to work on the basics, but very difficult to get the finer aspects right, this is a great medium for someone who has basic understanding, skills and training in Oil on Canvas.
Often touted as offering “best of both worlds of watercolours as well as oil on canvas” – as you can use them thickly like an oil paint, but also thin them into washes like watercolor (but really more like poster paint), Acrylic Colours have a vibrant beauty about them. Suited for beginners and experienced alike, this is one of the most sought after mediums for someone looking to do a hobby painting.
Starting with movement of pencil and thus hand, freehand drawing, taking measurements, to various shading techniques such as hatching, cross hatching, toning, texturing and full-fledged shading, this is one of the more intense coursework as it demands the artist to evoke the feelings in the viewer without the help of any colours. However, when done well, this surely evokes an awe in the eye of beholder.
From learning the very basic of creating the “block in process”, imbibing proportions into the drawing, correct position of still objects, measuring and capturing the essential angles in the composition to gradually moving on to creating more complex compositions, Charcoal Creations when done well, offers an euphoric feeling to the creator.
The art form created by the native people of the warli tribe residing in the North Sahyadri Range including cities such as Dahanu, Jawhar, Talasari, Mokhada, Palghar, and Vikramgadh, this art is a depiction of the Warlis / Varlis’ own lives, beliefs, culture, traditions, festivities, occasions, their joys, sorrows and everyday happenings with strict rules and regulations regarding the form, proportion, style and rendering.
One of the most difficult art and skill to acquire, drawing portraits includes positioning basic features, capturing correct proportions to building up and imparting perfectionism in tones, shapes and colours.
A step by step, progressive art and craft learnings for kids with various other activities such as origami, clay art, sand art, tie and dye, stone panting, utility crafts, felt craft, paper craft etc.
