    Delhi Drawing Room is a community of art enthusiasts who host paint parties at cafes and restaurants across the city. Art noob or a budding Frida Kahlo, everyone’s welcome to these paint gatherings where the idea is to enjoy a fun, artsy weekend.

    How It All Started

    Snehal, the Founder of Delhi Drawing Room, tells us that the concept of these paint gatherings started in Mumbai, at her own house when she wanted to throw a different kind of party for her friends and fam. She sent out the invites, uploaded pictures of the parties on Facebook and what started as just a creative way to host family meets soon became a full-time job that expanded to cities across India. After Bombay Drawing Room, Delhi & Bangalore Drawing Room, she has recently launched the Agra chapter, and will be hosting these paint parties in Ahmedabad too. In Delhi, these paint parties are usually organised once a week at our beloved SodaBottlerOpenerWaala and these lovely folks have also hosted events at AntiSocial and at the Summer House Café too.

    Ain't No Party Like A Painting Party

    Sit-around-and-do-nothing kinda parties can be fun, but attending a relaxed arty-party can be therapeutic, too. All the sessions here are hosted by artists who’ve majored in art, or at least have been painting for five to six years. The talented folks at Delhi Drawing Room are just the people you need to trust to help you paint {even if you’re someone who can barely draw stick figures}. During each party {two or two and a half hours long}, the artists will guide you at every step, and looking at all the pictures we’ve seen on Delhi Drawing Room’s Facebook page, we’re pretty sure that you’ll be impressed. The parties are organised for different age groups {kids 10+, adults and more}, follow different themes and techniques {we’re buying tickets for the knife-painting session!} and they’ll provide all the art materials along with food and drinks {yay!}.

    So, We're Saying..

    These parties can really be a fun way to unwind, meet new people and take back home a masterpiece you’re most likely to be proud of. Plus, when was the last time you went all crazy with paints, or even held a paint brush? Price: INR 1,500 {includes food, drinks and art supplies}. Book tickets here.
