Clay Modelling Workshop

“There are no happier people on this planet than those who decide that they want something, define what they want, get hold of the feeling of it even before its manifestation and then joyously watch the unfolding as, piece by piece by piece, it begins to unfold. That’s the feeling of your hands in the clay.” ~ Esther Hicks

Clay modelling is one of the most ancient art forms which incorporate creativity and artistry. It promotes self-confidence, encourages self-expression and develops problem-solving skills in youth design aspirants who are about to set foot in NIDs and IITs by cracking NID, NIFT, UCEED and CEED. We, THiNC Institute always ensures that our students get first-hand experience in different types of art and creative genres they would be needing in the near future. We strive to impart the best quality of training and professional development in our students through various teaching methods.

Clay modelling workshop was conducted by the famous sculptor Mr.Guru Prasad Ayyapan who is wellknown for his own signature style of square sculptures which he developed during his 33 years of career. His famous works include the 44-feet tall ‘Kailasanathan’ sculpture which is the largest single sculpture in Kerala.
