Welcome To Art RickshawArt is a tangible illusion, a visual imagery guided by the subconscious mind. It is a call of one's 'ruh', a tool by which one can transform their visions into reality. At Art Rickshaw, we celebrate the sheer beauty of an artist’s journey by providing them with a platform to freely express themselves with a rejuvenated confidence. Art Rickshaw Kolkata began its journey in February 2016. Our motto has essentially been to bring to the City of joy: a creative space that any artist freely can call his or her own. We offer expert guidance amidst the relaxed atmosphere of our studio to artists: right from beginners and hobbyists to the experienced.
We aim to achieve our motto through our three point angular program: our studio flexibly moulds into a school, a gallery and a hub. Our studio provides coaching in various media, including fine arts, photography, pottery, sculpting, drama and music. The Gallery encourages students and the art fraternity to pursue their inner creativity and display their artworks in an open space. The Hub, more like an ‘Open Art Forum’ is a platform for artists to experiment with creative media and have thought-provoking discussions, all over a steaming cuppa of chai or coffee. For we too believe that creativity is, indeed, a way of life!
Explore The Artist Within You
"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up" - Pablo Picasso
We at ART RICKSHAW, believe in the fact that art and an artist cannot be defined. Be it a random stroke of a brush or the hazy smudge of a charcoal stick, a splash of colour on a wet paper, a dollop of clay on a mat, art takes its form as the artist skilfully manevoures his hand through the medium, creating magic out of nothing.

ART FOR A GOOD CAUSE'Do small things with great love' - Mother Teresa
Once of the most satisfying, fun, and productive ways to live life, would be to bring a smile on somebody's face. We at Art Rickshaw hold camps for children who want to paint but are not able to do so. One such camp is the Art Sarobar camp which is held at the Rabindra Sarobar, Lakes. We would be happy and privileged, if you can volunteer to be of assistance in any way. Numerous children from many NGO's have attended our camp with great joy. Joining our team in giving an easy access to 'art to all', would surely be an uplifting experience not only for you, but for the whole society.
