INDIAN FOLK ART (90 minutes)

All levels

The folk and tribal arts of India are very ethnic and simple, yet colorful and vibrant enough to speak volumes about the country's rich heritage. Every region in India has its own style and pattern of art, which is known as folk art, and we will be exploring them in this class. All fall sessions will have Madhubani painting (Mithila Art), which is from the Mithila region of Bihar State,  and 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. This is an intrecrate artform, and it will take approximately a session/4 classes to complete a painting with some homework. We'll also be adding Kalamkari art in session III .

 

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 a sharper during the class.
