Charcoal Art Masterclass by Lakshmi Kumari on September 5th & 6th

About the Artist, Lakshmi Kumari (@artsyluxy):

I'm a practicing pediatric dentist in Chennai but art always had my heart. I practice art on a daily basis. It started as a stress buster for me but later I knew where my soul belonged. I practice only charcoal media, the pigment itself made me feel at home. I'm a self-taught artist and I learnt most of my technique by practice. I'm into realism and fauna art.
