    Art Class with Ali
    My wife and I took a miniature art painting class with Ali and we absolutely loved the experience! It definitely falls in our top 3 experiences from our entire Rajasthan trip. We both are beginner level drawers and painters, but Ali was very supportive and patient with our inexperience. He taught us techniques in drawing and painting and allowed us to do the entire work, only stepping in when he suspected us hitting a road block. He was great in offering suggestions on color schemes and what designs to utilize to garner an art piece we would appreciate. I spent 4 hours because I took my time but typically, Ali says it takes around 3 hours. For 200 rupees per hour per person, we ended up going back the next day because we were so happy with our art that we wanted another creation. Obviously it's not the same level of work that you can find at the shops, but we felt it was more cost effective creating our own piece to take home to display!

    A charming and trustworthy store
    This is an amazing place to buy beautiful Indian paintings. Art is getting rarer this days, let alone items of such ability, beauty and talent as the ones we’ve been shown. One of the best places in India I’ve ever visited. The owner and his son are highly talented artists and lovely human beings, too. This is the place to buy miniature paintings and more. Satisfaction guaranteed.

    Ali's art lesson
    Can't recommend enough. My boyfriend and I had a miniature painting lesson with Ali today and it was fantastic. He was a brilliant teacher, guiding us through step by step and we each have a painting we are truly proud of. Only rs.200/rs.250 per hour, depending on whether you use paper/silk. We worked slowly and ended up taking 4 1/2 hours but it flew by! Thank you Ali!

This store is somewhere you must see, enjoy the time with spectacular artifacts. Store was very clean and full of amazing things. All prices are written on each piece and you should not be afraid of cheating prices for tourists. Staff was very very friendly and reliable. We want to come again. Best store in Udaipur...

I took an art class at this place. The teacher, Hitesh Sir is an extremely talented and amenable person. He is patient with his students and really cares about your progress. Additionally, he makes you comfortable during the session by chatting up, so that you can be relaxed enough to freely execute the painting.
Strongly recommend!!

Stumbled upon this place while browsing shops for paintings and curios. What caught my eye was that they gave Art Lessons in miniature paintings. Had an awesome 3 hr long session with Ali where we recreated a Rajasthani version of The Beatles - Abbey Road album cover! Rekindled my childhood love for the arts and was thankful to have this near-therapeutic experience!

Bump into this place when we were walking around the city and did a quick miniature painting session within 2 hours. Turned out this is one of our best experience during the trip and the best souvenir we get for ourselves.
Pick a sample you like to draw and off you go! Our tutor Ali is a brilliant teacher who has more than 20 years' drawing experience, he guided us through out the whole process and fix our final works. You don't have to be a brilliant painter to enjoy this workshop, all you need is patient and the love of painting.

A great place - be it for shopping, learning, or admiring art. Very friendly and considerate people. Eager to answer questions about Indian arts, beliefs, customs, or contemporary life. No pressure to buy anything. Fair prices, which are fixed (no manipulation with your presumable "ability to afford paying more" or seasonal demand fluctuations). The selection of objects is diverse and ranges from very affordable good items to real real masterpieces(!).

Ankit was very helpful when we decided to buy our art piece. His prices were very reasonable compared to the other shops we visited. We are very happy with our canvas painting. He even bought us tea before we left. Great experience. His own work is also amazing.

My wife and I are both into art, so we were stoked to take an art class here. We had read about this place on Lonely Planet, and luckily our hotel happened to be just around the corner so we took a 2 hour class. The instructor, Madan, was amazing. He's super patient, chill and friendly. It was totally worth it. We ended up with two awesome souvenirs for ourselves that we've decided to frame when we're back home. Highly recommended if you're into art/painting, etc.

Ashoka Arts is a stand out place for its quality of products, clear and fair pricing and it's extremely friendly and helpful staff.

The Manager Ashok is very helpful and really passionate about his business and his valued customers. He was never forceful in sales and dedicated a great deal of his time to help me find the things I was looking for. He even helped me with other things in Udaipur I required, totally unrelated to his business.

Ashok is a very genuine and honest person and you must visit this place just to let him be of service to you.

The products are also of very high quality and have been highly admired by my family and friends back in London.

He has created everything under one roof including a cafe with a nice atmosphere, tattoo and mendhi design, a guesthouse and a restaurant.

I'm very thankful to Ashok and his team for making it so easy to find everything I needed in Udaipur.

From the outside it looks expensieve, its really cheap for the art work. I bought 2 big pieces, 2 small and keychains. It was a total off €60. Very cheap! Kind staff, they will help you in a not pushy way.

This is a Student Co OP. The fine detailed work is impressive. To truly appreciate such miniature work One must use a large Magnifier, then, the World encapsulated comes to life. Truly Magificant.

Top all this off sign up for an Art Class with Ashoka Kala and learn from his class the art of creating such fine detailed art work.
