About Rajasthan Studio
What is Rajasthan Studio?
Rajasthan Studio is an online marketplace platform for hands-on art experiences with master artisans of Rajasthan. Our platform connects award-winning artisans of Rajasthan with travellers, art-lovers, professionals, students for personalized art workshops. Apart from immersing in the artist’s unique world, one takes an art piece home, which is co-created together with the artist.
Today we live in an era where the pride of ‘experiencing’ the new is much greater than the pride of ownership. Millennials who are leading consumption today are more interested in exploring and discovering the world through all their senses. What better way to do that by exploring Rajasthan’s rich culture & heritage through ‘Art Experiences’.
Any art experience involves a two to five-hour-long personalized session with an artist of repute, who will explain & demonstrate to the participants the intricate details, history, cultural legacy and love and passion for the art. Any guest receives unique insights while parallely indulging in the art to design and co-create something of his/her own as a take-away.
Currently, there are 27 art experiences available on the platform out of which 15 art experiences are based in Jaipur, 5 experiences in Udaipur and 7 experiences in Jodhpur.
- A visit to the authentic art space/workshop of the artist.
- One-of-a-kind art workshop designed and curated by the team at Rajasthan Studio.
- An authentic and immersive experience which tells the story of the art form, city, neighbourhood or just the people, sometimes going back decades & centuries with the legacy of their art & craft.

No, we don’t pay artists as it is a small step towards building a community of artists where art can flow freely.
We believe in growing organically; so, either 300+ artists who are part of this community can refer to another artist or you can get in touch with us through our social media handles/e-mail as we would love to have you as a part of the community.
We send out invites based on the interests and passions of the community members and ask if they would want to be a part of the session.
These are time-bound sessions of 1 hour 15 minutes. We start each session punctually, by the clock.

Rajasthan Studio has two offices.
Its head office is based out of Jaipur whereas its corporate office is in Mumbai.
A young, passionate and energetic Chartered Accountant, Mr. Kartik Gaggar is the main driving force & founder behind Rajasthan Studio. He is presently obsessed with the thought of reviving people’s interest in all things from Rajasthan’s glorious past – art and culture, music & food, – albeit with a contemporary touch.
After research of 3 years, we discovered that Rajasthan is one of the culturally rich states which still hasn’t been explored to the fullest as far as art and culture are concerned. The state has so many amazing art forms that need a correct platform to reach the world. So we have started operations from Jaipur and aim to cover more than 20 cities in the state.
We are the world’s first and only brand, an online marketplace for art experiences.
