More About This Experience
You might have noticed paintings in the markets around town depicting every aspect of Cambodian life, from the floating villages of the Tonle Sap to the rolling rice fields of the countryside and the quintessential sunset depicting the Ankgor Wat temple. These paintings are the work of talented local artists each with his or her own style and characteristics. One of the most interesting forms of painting we have come across from our community is the art of spoon painting, where you use the spoon instead of a brush to paint.
You don't need to have prior experience to create something worth going up on your wall. Our instructors are professionals who will guide and help you along the way to ensure that what you create is a artwork you can be proud of. Join our host on this unique experience and add an artistic touch to your travels. Or better yet, make someone back home the best personalized gift from the Kingdom Of Angkor.

Had a great time spoon painting with my friend. The pickup location and timings were difficult to organise but good communication meant everything was sorted with minor glitches.

My friend and I who had zero experience absolutely loved this class. We were genuinely surprised by the quality of the paintings we produced with Svay’s guidance. Svay was a wonderful teacher. He was so knowledgeable, accommodating and helpful. Without realizing we spent well over three hours working on our paintings. Svay was incredibly patient and never tried to wrap things up before we were happy with our paintings. Would definitely recommend this experience regardless of age, or artistic ability!

Svay is very kind and helpful. He was attentive and gave good feedback and showed us techniques! Also the location of the workshop is very nice, we enjoyed painting in the shade outside.
