What Our Students Have to Say

We are very happy to be part of the Konsult Art & Design Academy family. We moved back from the US 1.5 years back and my son, Aniketh has been a student here since then. The teachers are proficiently skilled in art and they also have a very good philosophy of teaching here. They nurture the child’s interest in art and help the child’s talent blossom. Aniketh loves to go to his art class.

Our daughter is going for the oil painting course at Konsult for last one year and it has been an amazing experience so far. We’ve seen her improving day by day with great mentors at the academy. We would love to be associated with Konsult which provides such a great platform for art.
