The art summit was quite interesting one.I specially like the open area where the artists were expressing their creativity -live and one could walk in and interact with them!! This becomes a great platform to mingle and exchange your views with celebrated artist…and get enriched!!

Jaipur has been very active in the sphere of art, theater and crafts. The city has been witnessing lot of action in last few years…be it Jaipur Literature Festival (which is now an international event), theater festival like JairangamJaipur International Film Festival – JIFF  and so on….

Jaipur Art Summit is a great addition to the city.

The entry to Art Summit was free.

    1. I’m happy you enjoyed this virtual tour. I’m sure it’s something that every artist and art lover will enjoy. What aspects of art you love sandhya? Painting? Sketching?…

      1. Arv, I would not call myself an artist at all. My degree is in architecture and I love all kinds of arts and crafts.These days food photography seems to have taken over with the blog but I do enjoy the food styling part of it a lot.

      2. Food styling? Ah! looks like you’re applying your architecture knowledge very well! 🙂
        Technically, you’re not an artist but you surely know how to play around with lines and curves given your degree in architecture. So yes, you too have a good sense of aesthetics. I will consider that as someone who is better than a layman. 🙂
