National Institute for Zorig Chusum, Thimphu Overview

National Institute for Zorig Chusum, commonly known as the painting school, not only preserves the traditional Bhutanese Art but also passes it on to the next generation. Watching young people work with undivided attention is quite mesmerising and inspiring. Sewing, ornament-making, painting and carving are just some of the thirteen crafts that are taught here. The traditional Thangkha painting is also taught to a few foreigners who come to Bhutan.

There is a separate faculty for all the activities that are being taught. Integrity and dignity of labour are few of the many fine qualities which are not compromised on here, a tribute to the efforts put in by the people of Bhutan and the authorities to keep their art alive. There is a small souvenir shop at the end, which sells the handmade ornaments, paintings and other fine objects made by the students.
