Beautiful geographical features, religious and tourist places with unique historical and mythological back ground are the specialties of the region. The developments in modern technology, has resulted in industries flooding towards the city. Despite of this, the city that has preserved its traditional charm, has been a shelter to several fine arts including drawing and painting.
Drawing and painting is the ancient art genere of the world. Even today there are documents which prove that drawing and painting is a base to education. A systematic study of such an art is essential. Although city students are getting facilities to undergo such practices, students in rural areas are not getting much opportunity to learn this unique art.

rural areas. It is a dream child of Suresh K. Pandavarakallu. The difficulty he experienced when he wanted to undergo art education during his childhood is the very reason behind the birth of this institution. With an aim to provide an opportunity for systematic study and dissemination of fine arts, which helps for all round development of human being and offers a cultured mentality, shree chakrapani school of art was established on November 27, 2003 . The school was later registered in the name of shree chakrapani fine arts and educational trust on 6th April 2006 , for the convenience of administration and development.
