The Mysore painting form is an offshoot of the Vijayanagar school of painting. The king, Raja Wodeyar (1578-1617 CE) is credited to have been the patron for this style of painting. The distinctive feature of these paintings is the gesso work in which gold foils are pasted on appropriate regions on the paintings. Mysore is also the location of the International Ganjifa Research Centre which is involved in the research of Ganjifa, the ancient card game and the artwork associated with it.
Mysore is famous for rosewood inlay work, with an estimated 4000 craftsmen in Mysore involved in this activity. Mysore also lends its name to the Mysore silk saree, a feminine wear, made using pure silk and gold zari.
Mysore also has institutes like the Chamarajendra Academy of Visual Arts (CAVA) which offers education in visual art forms like painting, graphics, sculpture, applied art, photography and photojournalism and history of art and the theatre repertory Rangayana, which holds plays and offers certificate courses on subjects related to theatre.
