Madhubani Painting 

 

Madhubani Painting is a style of Indian Painting practised in the Mithila region of Bihar State. Hence, it is also called as Mithila Painting. It is one of the many famous Indian folk art forms.  These paintings often characterized by complex geometrical patterns, people and their association with nature and the scenes, deity from the ancient epics and representing ritual content for particular occasions, including festivals, religious rituals, etc. The colors used in Madhubani paintings are usually derived from plants and other natural sources. Traditionally objects like twigs, matchsticks and even fingers are used to create the paintings. 

 

Students should use watercolor paper for drawing, and acrylic paints and fine line markers/sharpies for coloring. Keep these supplies handy along with basic drawing pencil, eraser and  sharper during the class. Madhubani paintings are intricate, so expect to get some homework from these classes.

 

Note: All adult classes are subject to have 6 or more students.
