CREATE: the artist studio is led by Andrew Clark and the team of Smiling Albino, the travel company known for its exceptionally curated excursions throughout the Mekong. Art teachers bring to the class the most picturesque landscapes, and fascinating towns and villages, and amazing people, guiding you through techniques that will awaken the artist within. There are also classes outside the studio, in the small streets of Bangkok’s Creative District, riverside areas of Chinatown, and green pockets of Klongsan and Portuguese community of Kudijeen. .
“One of our favorite neighborhoods is Talad Noi – narrow sois running from Charoenkrung Road to the Chao Phraya River. Lanes lined with shophouses where vendors cook and traders work on car parts, buildings built in Chinese style, pocket parks filled with 100-year-old trees. Taking the class into areas of old Bangkok to draw, paint or photograph is an experience even the most experienced artist dream of.
Create: The Artist Studio opens on Wednesday 1 July 2020, but is taking bookings for classes right now. Each workshop limited number of participants at 4-10 seats only to ensure personalised teaching and social distancing. All art supplies are included in the price of the class. For non-Thai speakers, classes will be conducted in by English speaking teachers and others in Thai with a translator into English.
