Picasso Faculty Indian Trainers

At Picasso, we believe that a good teacher is akin to a candle – it consumes itself to light the way for others. As Horace Mann says, a teacher who attempts to teach without inspiring the student with a desire to learn is hammering on a cold iron. With this in mind, our Indian trainers not only impart wisdom in our pupils; they also instill in them, the desire to propel themselves towards gaining excellence and success in the field of Animation. With extensive experience in their area of expertise, our faculty members strive to enhance the academic arsenal of students so as to help them to flourish within global standards of quality.
