Art connoisseurs, amateurs, and Andy Warhol wannabes: come one, come all. Bangkok’s art scene is better than ever, with exhibitions, galleries, and more popping up in and around the city almost every day. If you want in on a piece of the action, however, there are plenty of places around the city where you can get your hands dirty and start crafting.

Here we’ve got the six best places to get crafty in Bangkok.
Paint and sip at one of the best bars to get creative in the city: Paintbar Bangkok. There are few establishments that allow you to both drink wine and get those creative juices flowing. In addition to a wide variety of wine, beer, cider, soda, and non-alcoholic beverages, Paintbar Bangkok also serves up some delicious light tapas and snacks for you to nibble on while you channel your inner-Picasso. You can bring your own wine, however, there’s a corkage fee. Paintbar Bangkok also has a wide variety of painting subjects for you to choose from, including a lavender field, Thailand’s famous tom yum goong dish, and fuji blossoms, just to name a few. The total cost includes the painting supplies, the canvas, and a few hours of instruction. We recommend that you book ahead of time. Paintbar Bangkok is open from 2 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday through Saturday, open from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, but is closed on Monday. It can also host private parties. All courses start at ฿799. To get to Paintbar Bangkok, take the BTS Skytrain to stop Phrom Phong. Then it’s only a short taxi ride away.
