the art academy
Mary Venmathi here, it’s been 12 years ever since I realized the need to open up people to Art and make people understand the role of Art in their lives. Committing oneself to Art, kindles a new perspective over every little thing around, it lets an individual discover a new inner self that connects deep down to their heart and soul. And at the same time I knew I need to serve every individual in their own skin, hence Maven..
Maven delivers a holistic way of teaching, getting into every detail of the art that genuinely provokes and brings out the capability of every individual, this rightly portrays the creator herself and hence derived from her name, MAVEN
Here we believe rather than to just put an individual through teaching, opening them up to a platform that showcases their works to the society of their own tribe, artists, common man & more, is going to bring them up 10 Folds. As a result, “நேர்த்தியின் மரபு” (Nerthiyin marabu) plays an important role in each of our student’s period at Maven. Every student who walks in will be given the encouragement to bring out her/his emotions in their own ways, whether it’s a 4 year old or an 80 year old. So, Ask yourself if u need to see Life through Art, that undoubtingly refines the quality of life.
The best thing about Maven, hands-down undeniably anyone who steps-in would say it’s a Home away from Home. The ambience, positive energy and vibe never fails to lift our spirits no matter how dull our day was. Everyone there are so amicable, approachable & understanding that makes the learning so much fun. There are 2 things that makes my time at Maven a wonderful experience, flexibility in timing and personalised programs they provide, with these two aspects it makes each of us a professional.
Maven, the place, the paintings and the children there reflect – your passion in art, your bubbling energy, your eversmiling face, your indomitable spirit, the love for what you are doing. Wishing you and Maven lot of success in coming years and to kindle the spark of creativity in many more lives. You are truly an inspiration for me.
It’s been 8 years since I started learning from Maven, started with just Oil pastel as a Level 2 student, now taken up & learnt Acrylic, Oil, Portrait & Digital art from here. Going beyond, they have helped me through the preparations for Nata, Nift & UC entrances. I hope and wish this special bond with Maven grows in the years to come.
Three years ago, I started a 3D wall painting as my first experiment with art. Three years later, Maven is an integral part of my journey in art. Starting from emulsion paints to acrylic to oil, I have had a very colourful journey with Maven. The teachers at Maven have been exemplary in the way that they have taught me the use and play of colours on varied surfaces ranging from wooden boards to canvases. I am grateful to all my teachers at Maven for bringing out the artist in me. Here’s to many more years of my journey with Maven!
