I was very happy to see that Backstreet Academy is now in Udaipur. I chose to do the stone sculpture class, where I had a chance to carve my own Ganesh statue from a block of stone. I have never done anything like that before, but knew in was in great hands. I love my statue. I was picked up from my homestay, brought to the craftsman's work space and made to feel comfortable by the BSA staff. They were with me the whole time, translating when needed. The local artist did a rough outline to show me where I needed to carve and helped me through the whole process. He was very friendly and patient with me. After I chipped my Ganesh's ear off, we laughed about it and he was able to fix it for me. It was awesome being able to create my own souvenir of this magical place, while creating great memories instead of just buying it off the street. BSA is very well priced. The value that you get out of their classes are worth much more than you pay. Also, it is great supporting local artists and craftspeople. I can not recommend BSA enough. I will continue to look for them in any country I travel to.
