Ramesh Aravind, Actor, Director, TV show host, said “In our fast-paced lifestyle, we’re never able to take some time out to really express ourselves. Even if people do express themselves, they do it very sporadically and not consciously. The Hobby Place works as an escape from all the world, where one can de-stress, and bond with their loved ones while creating art in a variety of forms.”
The event culminated with a live expression of art on an easel, wherein attendees painted their emotions on the canvas using various art mediums.
