The exposure received at Unolona Academy helped me grow not only academically, but even as a person. Harsimran Sir and Shalu Ma’am have been very instrumental in inculcating a strong design foundation in my journey. I was the happiest when I attended their classes. So grateful!

It was an amazing experience.
The team was absolutely wonderful with everything and I couldn’t
be more thankful for all they have done for me. Harsimran Sir really helped me with understanding art styles, my artwork and helped me discover the real artist in me.

At Unolona , I was able to get my art skills to a higher level. Even though the pandemic restricted a lot of my in person interactions, the online communication was great. The faculty is always willing to help and are equipped with endless knowledge about art. I recommend Unolona Academy for Art Education.
