Brush up your artistic skills and join us for a fun mixer as we sip on cocktails and colour outside the lines of a few popular artworks by contemporary Kalighat artist, Kalam Patua, from the MAP collection. Begin spring with an art-for-all colouring event facilitated by the museum’s educators – Shilpa Vijayakrishnan and Shubhasree Purkayastha. 

Characterised by bright colours and long, bold, sweeping lines, the Kalighat tradition evolved as a unique genre of Indian painting in 19th-century Kolkata. With a healthy dose of art history, colouring, and cocktails – stirred, shaken, tossed, and muddled – we will delve into the world of Kalighat paintings in this session.

Only 30 spots available. Register now!

This is a physical event. There is limited parking available near the venue. We encourage you to use public transportation.

This event is supported by the Our Shared Cultural Heritage (OSCH) programme. OSCH is a youth-led project that celebrates South Asian history and culture.
