Located in a tree-lined campus, CKP — as it is popularly known — has a museum, a store and a gallery worth visiting. The gallery has rotating exhibits while the museum has permanent displays of paintings and crafts.

Excellent place to spend Sunday morning walking down miles of art work. Amazed to see so many participants displaying their paintings. Saw many artists getting inspired and starting a sketch on the spot. Lots of food stalls to ensure you never run out of things to eat. Place not to be missed. Happens only once a year, the first Sunday of every new year.

The complex has 18 galleries. 13 of these galleries carry a permanent collection of paintings, sculptures and folk art. The other galleries are rented out for exhibitions of works by artists of repute. The folk art collection showcases Mysore paintings and leather puppets. The Parishat runs the College of Fine Arts, a visual arts college.

Absolute delight for art lover and otherwise. For me the place is special, because interestingly i met my life partner here. For us this place has a different meaning.
We keep going back to Chitrakala Parishat quite often. And yes chitrasanthe is the favorite time to go. it occurs (mostly) on the first Sunday of January (they keep shifting the date now but it is mostly on a Sunday on January. It is an extravaganza in itself and one must visit if you plan to travel to Bangalore in January.

The Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath is an art museum and gallery containing an eclectic mix of sculptures, both abstract and modern, folk and modern paintings. The focus is mainly indigenous artists, but there's also a small collection of international artists.

Some of the highlights include the dreamlike paintings of Chanchal Mukherjee and Svetoslav Roerich, the cursive style of brush strokes and elliptical shapes of paintings by Surya Prakash and the Mysore style of art with subjects decorated with gold clothing and jewellery.

Well worth the entrance fee.

If just want to soak in the artistic experience and get your creative juices sprouting this is one place in busy Bangalore you must visit once a while. Saw the world photographic festival here in Dec'14 it was superb.and every week there are changes to exhibitions which you enjoy plus if you are lucky can enjoy free hospitality of tea and snax at the inaugural functions.

KCP has been our favourite place for arts & crafts. Not to mention the numerous photographic, art, textiles and crafts exhibitions. The institute also has an excellent Kamat Cafe which has authentic Karnataka menu and great value for money. The coffee here is excellent.
