Art Retreat in Nature
What Is It?
'The Craftsutra' along with 'Travel bug Bytes' is organising an arty & relaxing weekend getaway. Along with our art buddies, we will take you to the mountains to spend the weekend at an art residency in Jibhi, Himanchal Pradesh, wherein you get to dive into multiple artistic adventures.
Who Is It For?
Creative souls, artists, enthusiasts, and everyone interested in bringing out their expressive side with art. If you’d like to explore and learn new art techniques, make new friends with fellow travellers, and have an offbeat weekend, you’re in for a treat. Best part? You need no prior art experience for this!
Why Should You Go For It?
Nishi from ‘The Craftsutra’ & Himani (Doodles by Himani) will be your art guides throughout the experience. For the kind of art you’ll be undertaking, you’ll be learning mindful doodling, yarn mandala, basics of Mural Art (wall art), different expressive art exercises along with some local art exploration.
You’ll be staying in an art residency with lush greenery all around in the hills, with all the amenities you could need. Female travellers will be paired with fellow female travellers and the experience will last for two days.
