Welcome to Surat
Surat's cultural history needs no introduction. The diamond city of India is well known for traditional Gujarati dance forms such as Dandiya Raas and Garba, theatre forms such as Bhavai and Akhyana, and a world-renowned culinary scene. The Crimson Canvas partners with local artists in the city to bring you a mix of traditional and modern art styles ranging from Lippan and Meenakari styles to modern abstract and impressionist styles. If you are looking for something new to do in this beautiful city, join us at an art workshop!
