GAC falls under the ambit of the Shankardev Art Society, a registered trust.

We believe art cannot evolve without complete creative freedom. There are no shortcuts to learning art, and our mentors have developed the courses to convey as much knowledge as possible in the allotted period. Our classes are intended for beginners, hobbyists, and those interested in pursuing a profession in arts. Experts in their respective professions create each course.

GAC is a community that believes in building long-term relationships with its members and growing together in the field of art. By participating in-

any of our programmes, you become a permanent part of the GAC family. Guwahati Art Club is continuously on the lookout for methods to guide, assist, and support its extended family.

Our students and participants are our highest priority. We have discovered that by fostering an environment of creative freedom and support, our students enter the professional world confidently and with a desire to excel.

GAC chose Guwahati because it is well connected to other Northeastern cities. As a result, our knowledge may be disseminated throughout the Northeast, reducing the need for our youngsters to travel vast distances to acquire a decent education.
