Course Details

This course is a must learn for students who create pieces of art at regular intervals. The training provided will enable students to mount their own canvas for their art pieces instead of paying out exuberant sums for the canvas buying it from art supply stores. Some of the other advantages the students will realise undergoing the DIY course on framing a canvas is the choice of material they wish to use for their canvas, the size and even shape of the canvas as well as any other customisation they think necessary for their painting. Buying readymade canvas does not provide the flexibility and more  importantly they retail for a hefty price and their quality is poor comparatively. Moreover this also enables one to re-mount and de-mount canvas on frames which help storing and archiving your works conveniently.

Value Additions

 An artist is an independent soul who expresses himself through different artforms.
