These small schools flourished under the local rulers but after the decline of the local kingdom these art schools were also lost. These schools established to promote and revitalize local craft, imparted training in floral design, drawing, painting and clay modelling along with other subjects like smithy, willow work etc. here local trainees were introduced to the tool of western realism like drawing from models, nature studies in water colors, oil painting etc the work of Master Sansar Chand, The story of modern art in Jammu and Kashmir starts with the opening of technical school in the 1 st quarter of the 20th century, at Srinagar, Jammu Anantnag and Mirpur.
