To exchange knowledge and techniques, teach new students, and manufacture goods artists came in contact with each other in guilds, called “Karkhanas”.

One such Karkhana for miniature art is run by Mr. Gopal Lal Sharma called Gopal Lal Sharma’s Karkhana. He has learnt this art as a student under Padam Shri Lt. Ram-Gopal Vijayvargiya in his karkhanas. Now Mr. Gopal runs his own karkhana.

The Guru-Shishya Tradition kept alive

Mr. Sharma teaches students in Guru-Shishya parampara, a traditional Indian school of teaching. No tuition fee is charged from students who want to learn this art for their livelihood. When they start producing meaningful art they are inducted in the group as an on-job trainee.
The teaching starts with course on colour production. Colours are produced from stones, flowers and leaves. Later teaching of surface preparation, on which colour will be applied, is given. Then sketching and colour filling is taught. Finally detailing of painting using single hair brush is done. This the basic course about miniature painting.
