Frequently asked questions

Art & Online

Why should I be taking an art course for my child?
For overall development at a young age. It has been proven that art helps in cognitive development and helps refining fine motor skills, neural development and problem solving abilities. The children also find a way to express themselves more clearly and independently which is an essential part of their overall growth.
But, can art really be taught online?
At Pixical, we have created a unique platform, from the grounds up, which upgrades the quality of learning through a distraction free platform, built specifically for learning art. Notes, resources and class recordings are made available to the student after the classes to revise and refer again. Students also have the added advantage to attend these premium virtual lessons from anywhere the Internet is available.
How do I know if my child is really suited to learn art?
The teachers take into account the level of the child in the onboarding call and adjust the content in the classes accordingly taking into account the needs of the child. (Further, you can take the MIT test to suitably gauge the interest of the child)
Why should I pay for an online course when I can learn directly from free resources available online?
There are numerous resources available online which can be helpful to gauge the interest level of the child in a particular field but they are not enough for complete skill development due to lack of feedback and no assignments to follow back on. Students often lose motivation in a few days due to lack of deadlines and no support while learning solo.
It's been a tough 12 months for kids zooming all year long. I am not sure whether I should put my children through online classes
The video conferencing tools that we use daily were not built for learning, and we all have our stories of screen fatigue. Every touchpoint of the Pixical program - be it the platform, curriculum, lesson design - has been dictated by the twin objectives of Fun & Learning. So, worry not - A 50 min session will be enriching & exciting at the same time.

Teacher related

Are the teachers equipped to handle kids?
The teachers have been specially hired to make sure they can teach kids - We look for these traits - Patience, Encouraging, Helpful, Friendly, Engaging & Fun along with functional expertise on the various forms of visual art. Our teachers believe that the teaching should meet where the kids are, rather than follow a strict lesson plan
Have the teachers taught online?
Yes, we have recruited teachers who have years of online teaching experience, and have adapted to the online medium quickly.

Course related

Would I be able to keep track of my child’s progress?
The learning outcomes are shared beforehand with the parent and each lesson and assignment can be tracked on the parent dashboard which is created at the beginning of the course. We will also keep you updated about the child’s performance and progress through Discord groups and emails.
How long is the course for?
The course length is 12 weeks, with 1 class every week.
Do I need to be present with my children during the classes? How will the children adjust with technology?
No, It’s not necessary for you to be present with the kid. You may or may not attend the classes as per your convenience. Online classes are new to many students, hence our teachers guide the students with any technical issues to make the classes hassle free
Are there any prerequisites for enrolling in this course?
No, there are no prerequisites as such. All you need is an internet connection with good bandwidth, a sketchbook and stationary, a device to attend the sessions from and a zeal to learn
My child already has had some training before.
Flexibility is the key to learning at Pixical. Whether your children are just starting out or they already make amazing art, there is always something to gain for them in the classes. Even if your child has had experience before, the teachers will adjust the lessons accordingly, teach new techniques and bring a fresh approach to the thinking process.
How many children will be present in each session?
There will be 3-5 children in each session to promote peer learning and collaborative skills.
Would my child be able to connect with other students for learning purposes?
Parents will be invited to a Discord group to share daily thoughts and for interaction. The students can share their work, ask questions and provide feedback through the common platform.
Would my child get adequate attention in a group class?
The groups have been intentionally kept small to allow maximum attention to each and every student. Teachers make sure to give specialized attention to everyone to ensure no one falls behind.
Will I be able to schedule the classes at my convenience?
No, once the groups are created, the classes are conducted on the same day and time every week. This is to ensure coordination among all members of the group and ensure uniformity.
What happens if I miss a particular class?
While it is advisable to attend every class live to derive the maximum value, we understand that certain times it might not be possible to do so. Hence, if a child misses the class for some unforeseen reasons, the parents can request for a catch up session to cover the missed lessons.
Would the art materials be provided by Pixical?
No, the art materials would not be provided by Pixical, but you would be informed of the required material before every class by the teacher so that the student comes ready.
Can I select the group in which my child would be a part of?
The cohorts are formed after taking into account the children’s skill level, age group, to ensure the best learning possible for all the students. However, if the student wants to opt for a different group, it can be changed on a case to case basis by talking with the coordinator. (Also, if you want to enroll with a specific group, you can enroll as a group of 3-5 students and receive a group discount)

What forms of payment are accepted? Do I pay monthly or per lesson?

Is the money refundable for some unforeseen circumstance?
We are sure that this situation will not arise, but for some unforeseen circumstance if you are not satisfied with the quality of the instructor or the course - We offer a "No questions asked, refund".
