Five Day Art Program – Introduction to Folk and Contemporary Art
Bloom & Grow is conducting a 5-day art program that includes an introduction to Indian folk as well as contemporary art forms.
The five-day program is designed for beginners and the following will be included:
1. Day 1 – Madhubani on Pots
Participants will learn Madhubani art form and its different methods will be explained in detail. Get familiar with Madhubani as an art form. Learn about its story, grammar, colors, motifs, and special characteristics. The day will be about doing pretty pots with the Madhubani Art.
Mud and Mirror work (also known as Lippan Kaam) is a traditional craft of Kutch, Gujarat. Learn to work with clay and mirrors on canvas and create a beautiful art piece. What more, one can also do walls in Lippan
Carve a design into a unique rubber stamp with simple, easy-to-follow techniques totally from scratch. Get comfortable with tools and learn how to carve your own re-usable rubber stamps. By the end of the day, we will know how to print using self designed stamps.
5. Day 4 – Impasto Painting
Impasto is a technique used in painting, where the paint is laid on an area of the surface in very thick layers so that brush or painting-knife strokes are visible. When dry, impasto provides texture. Layer up a canvas with vibrant tube paints, and use a brush to make your artwork pop.
Woodcut is among the oldest printmaking techniques, and continues to be a strong graphic tradition today. This workshop will introduce you to the tools and methods needed to allow you to carve your own block and print from your own relief woodblocks. You will explore carving techniques to obtain a range of texture, depth, and dramatic contrast to create strong visual statements in your artwork.
Participants will do woodcut on 2 coasters.
The art program is open to anyone who loves to learn and create and is over 10 years of age.
Date- 29th April to 3rd May
Fee:- Rs 3500 for all 5 days (includes all material)
Rs 1000 per day (in case only attending 1/2/3 days)
Venue: Bloom & Grow, Koramangala
