Training on handicrafts is provided every six days of a week. For the first two years of learning, the students are destined to practice image drawings as per the iconographic rules from the scriptures. While in the third year, they have their hands on iconographic grids particular to each deity or yogi. Here, proportions and measurements of grids as per ancient scriptures are of utmost importance in making this sacred art. Simultaneously the students also take classes on Tibetan Buddhist texts for deep knowledge of religious figures and their attributes. Tibetan thangkas are traditionally made in natural colours extracted from plants, soil, and minerals, hence Norbulingka artists also follow the custom. The most striking quality of Tibetan Thangkas is their vivid colours and potent illustrations that leave a vivid impression in the mind while doing meditation, seizing global attention for its creative good. The cost of Thangka paintings ranges from Rupees 42,000 to 64,000.
