It was a great experience with artbeat. I had opted for sketching and shading short term online courses. Juveria is a wonderful teacher, her teachings are well structured. Even though it was an online class, each and every point was made clear and she would patiently clarify any doubts. I Really enjoyed the sessions of sketching and shading.

I joined Art beat online sketching class and it was an amazing experience. I always wanted to get better in sketching, their course helped me to learn so many little techniques. Sharanya mam was very helpful, provided guidance constantly and I must say, she is very patient. I am thankful that I did this course and will look forward to do many more..

I did “Sketching and Shading” course with Art Beat last year. Would say - 12 hrs well invested! Course content was very well structured. I picked up a drawing pencil after almost 15 long years, but that gap almost vanished once I started attending these “well instructed and demonstrated” classes with Rashi Ma’am. Will definitely come back for more lessons :) - Chetna

I had joined Short term course of Sketching with ArtBeat, it was a good learning experience for me. I learned the techniques of shading and giving life to the simple drawings. It was all with the help of Juveria ma'am. I would specially thank the ArtBeat team who have made the best setup and provide a helping hand whenever I needed the support. They created the whatsapp group and timely keep on posting the pictures for keeping the students motivated..Thanks to each and everyone for extended support and help. I would definately recommend ArtBeat for giving the new learners a hands on experience of learning the Art in a systematic way.
