Paint to Empower
We are artists ourselves and we recognize the importance of engaging one's creativity especially while growing up. The Paint to Empower project has been created especially to help underprivileged children experience the joy of extracurriculars.
The Crimson Canvas team engages children at foster homes and orphanages in the city through fun training sessions which serve to vocationally train them in various art forms, with a specific focus on our forte -- Acrylic on canvas painting.
The Crimson Canvas is partnered with REACH LIVES, to implement this initiative. We exclusively engage their list of vetted, participating orphanages to conduct the workshops.
Frequently Asked Questions
Our StoryBorn in a small village in Goa, I wanted to achieve way more than I was expected to. So, playing for the Indian Taekwondo team and striving to become a doctor at St. John’s Medical College brought in enormous amounts of stress. The most obvious way to deal with this was to meditate. Take an hour of my day, sit with myself and try to be conscious about my body and mind. But in a world where multitasking is the norm and time is valuable, my attempts at meditation were just not successful. After stumbling upon some art supplies at home one day, I picked up a paint brush and a few acrylics and brought the blank canvas to life. What I saw made me proud because I had created it. But most of all, my mind felt at peace. I was euphoric and the stress had disappeared. This gave birth to the concept of The Crimson Canvas. My aim is to let you use painting as a tool to create and rejuvenate, thus letting you explore your true artistic potential. By being a part of The Crimson Canvas you will be proud to have a beautiful self-made painting up on your wall.
What We DoWe believe that the next best thing to a stress-free life is a couple of hours spent every week bonding over wine and paint. At the Crimson Canvas, we aim to let you use painting as a tool to create and rejuvenate while letting you explore your true artistic potential along the way. We do this by curating guided, group-painting sessions led by lively instructors at local pubs and restaurants in Bangalore. The idea is to create a fun, stress-free environment where you can sip wine and eliminate inhibitions, while making plenty of lifelong friends and a painting that you can be proud of.
