Yesterday my mom and I showed up at the art school after reading about it online. We were so excited about taking a free lesson, but when we arrived they told us it was closed because of Independence Day :( (our fault) once we expressed how sad we were, the owner, Vijay, immediately told us to sit down and he'd...

The guy who runs this school is the nicest guy. We were drawn in by the beautiful miniature art, looking to buy something and ended up spending ages there! He taught us all about how they make the paints using natural ingredients, about the school, even demonstrated a miniature painting of an elephant on a chickpea which he let us... More
