Drishya School of Arts, Udupi & Manipal
To appreciate art one does not need to be an art authority. What one requires is a “see through” sense. The urge to work in this direction came on to the mind of Ramesh Rao, a well known artist based in Udupi, in December 1997 thus came into being the Drishya School of Arts in Udupi. With the lush green naturally made habitat gardens surrounding in, the school has a different look meant for any art school. Apart from quality teaching in building up good art students and educating them on the importance of art in their academic career, the school also provides good library & organizes exhibition and workshops on various mediums in art, from time to time
Over three hundred students from Udupi & suburbs flock in every week to sketch, draw or paint, shedding their energy and vitality on paper or on canvas. As the inflow of the students to learn art here has surpassed the strength, a branch of the school was opened in Manipal in March 2003. Yet another feather in cap of the school & “ from here where we go lies to be seen” says Ramesh Rao, who also happens to be the president of Artist Forum Udupi.
