Welcome to Saraswathi Arts & Academy

The mission of the Saraswathi Arts & Academy is to educate artists in the broadest sense, both as creative practitioners engaged with a wide range of disciplines in the visual arts and as enlightened citizens of the world who are prepared to question and transform society. The program is structured around an integrated curriculum that fosters connections between disciplines, as well as between traditional and new media. The centre experience affords the opportunity for the development of individual artistic vision in dialogue with collective debates and experiments within an intimate community of artists. The study of history, theory and criticism in the visual arts and general studies in the humanities and social sciences are considered essential in intellectually grounding studio practice. Central to the school’s philosophy is the advancement of the artist’s role in relation to the prevailing forms and institutions of cultural production.

Our Thanjavur paintings are always created by a team of artisans consisting of an experienced embosser, a visage impressionist, 24 karat gold leaf guilder and a master artist who focuses on painting the faces with the correct expressions. Saraswathi Arts & Academy’s Thanjavur paintings gallery features over 76 different puranic depictions of goddess lakshmi, lord Krishna, Bagwan Ganesha, Shiva, Balaji, Veer Hunuman and others. Apart from the regular paintings, we offer two other specalised variants namely Super Embossed Thanjavur Paintings and the Antique Finish Thanjavur Paintings.
