  9. All 3 sessions should be completed within 10 working days.
  10. The class includes a prepared board  & as time is limited, only the work pertaining to this painting will be done in these classes. We encourage students, to space their classes so they have time in between the sessions to complete homework. We encourage the students to do more homework so they can be better prepared to do their own painting later. We also do weekend only sessions for those who can’t come during the week.
  11. We request the students to keep time and also stick to the same timing for the duration of the course.  For any change of class timing, kindly send a msg to either Mrs. Champa or Ms. Sowmya so we can coordinate the same. If the student is not able to make it for class, kindly inform at least 2 hours before so we can inform the Artist. For any last minute cancellations or if the student does not inform ahead and if the artist shows up, we would be charging Rs.200 to pay for artist transportation charges.
  12. The student will be given a certificate of completion from CHAYA after the final class. CHAYA shares the photo of the student holding the certificate on our CHAYA FB page. However if the student is not willing to  share on FB, we will respect that.
  13. The picture you make will need to be framed. If you would like us to frame it, the framing charges will be actuals depending on the type of frame chosen. you can let us know after the first class regarding the frame.  We usually recommend a chettinad straight frame +acrylic (not glass).
  14. We can also teach other size paintings however the charges/ time taken for class will vary. We recommend students go with the 8x10 inch size first and thereafter other larger sizes. Any extra work (such as learning how to do other faces/ other sketching), can certainly be taught outside of these sessions. The classes will be charged per class. The duration is generally for 1.5 hours.
