The five-day program is designed for beginners and the following will be included:

Participants will learn Gond art form and its different methods will be explained in detail. Get familiar with Gond as an art form.

2. Day 2 – Lippan 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.

3. Day 3 – Bottle Painting with Neon Colors

Learn to paint glass bottles with bright neon colors and use them as beautiful home deco

4. 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.

5. Day 5 – Woodcut 
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.
