Find your expression in the world of Art with Chitra. As an adult we have enough and more things that take up our time, but what if we could set aside some time to learn a skill in art that we've always dreamt of?

The Art Community at Quest is for you, if you would like to learn the various techniques and styles of art from an expert at your own pace. Customise your classes with the facilitator by discussing times and dates that suit you. Sign up for as many techniques and styles as you'd like or master just one of them. It's entirely up to you to learn in a manner that works best for you.

The classes would happen on Saturdays, at Quest. Join the Art Community Whatsapp group to stay in touch with the facilitator and fellow budding artists. To do so, you can click the register button below or open this link on your phone's browser: http://bit.ly/artcommunityatquest

Here's a list of skills you can sign up for. Pick and choose the ones you'd like to hone and Chitra would be able to customise a learning journey for you.
