A Guide To Drawing, Painting And Scribbling In Mumbai

If you miss the simplicity of sitting down with a blank sheet, some crayons or oil paint, and just peacing out from the real world for a few hours because you’re focusing on getting just the right shade of red on that sunset, join the club. We’ve rounded up four groups that allow supposed adults to paint, etch, sketch and generally create a mess that would make our mothers nostalgic. Go forth and don’t forget to colour outside the lines.

The Pomegranate Workshop

Workshops include Bringing Life to Art; Art With the Artists; Think, Feel, Art plus Experience Theatre, Writing Fiction, Impact Film Mentorship and more. You'll find their updated schedules on their social platforms.
