A NEW Art centre will open its doors to art lovers tonight. Kalabhavan Bahrain (The Abode of Art), located in Adliya, will be opened by Cochin-based Kalabhavan director Reverend Father James Aerthayil, at 8pm.
Bahrain centre managing director Joby Thomas said the non-profit centre promises to give the students the best in art, from playing musical instruments to drawing, painting and mimicry.
The late Father Dr Abel Jacob founded Kalabhavan, which has trained famous Malayalam film artistes since it was formed in 1969.
The centre will be open seven days a week and students will be able to choose class days and timings. Classes, run by eight instructors, will be available from 8am to 1pm and from 3pm to 8pm.
The centre is located in Villa 204, Road 2704, behind HSBC. Free transportation will be provided for the students. The Bahrain centre is the sixth Kalabhavan centre in the Gulf. There are two centres in the US.
