Art workshops are pretty common in this day and age. But a 12-day long gathering of painters which India's capital, New Delhi, is currently hosting is one of its kind in the world as all the participants are convicts!
Eighty criminals have been flown to India's flagship prison, Tihar Jail, from prisons in six states to hone their artistic talent under the guidance of 18 professional painters who are teaching them how to improve their creative skills.
