A very famous painter once said, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain one as we grow up.” Walking on a similar line of thought, Zostel Mussoorie presents an Art Rendezvous. Not an artist by profession? Do not worry! You do not need to know any form of art to be a part of it. We believe in focusing on the therapeutic process of art rather than the end product. Our aim is to create a safe space for everyone to explore their creativity, strike up conversations with fellow travellers, share amusing stories, and have a lot of fun. The Artists Rajvi Vats is a professional artist who reflects the interaction of her mind and matter as a dialogue of brush and paints that is warm, vivid, and sensual to the eye. In her paint sessions, she aims to help participants derive a positive mindset towards life while indulging in a calming painting experience. Manisha Sharma has been an Art of Living teacher for 14 years. She is a reiki grandmaster and practices sound healing, NLP, LPR, and tarot reading. Her ways of training are as pragmatic as they are exotic and unbelievable. Shlok Gera who will be conducting the percussion jam believes in spreading joy through music. He is a part of the band YAMAN and facilitates drum circles.
Hosted by Rajvi Vats & Shlok Gera

Sit at our scenic hostel, together with fellow artists, and paint to some feel-good tunes by the drum circle. During this session, we will conduct painting and movement based activities, musical activities, and interactive activities. We strongly believe & actively endorse Art as a “Process” and not as a “Product”. We want to enable people to reclaim their relationship with art. It's not about creating “the perfect artwork” it’s about the process, the aura and conversations with people that surface in your art.
Strokes You will try several painting techniques like mixing, learning brush strokes, and using the canvas to fill your mental space with positivity. Our art instructor will guide you through this therapeutic art session. You will process your feelings, play with instruments and colours and sing your heart out loud.
