Budding artists aged 12+ are invited to try their hand at applying ancient Indigenous techniques to modern art. Regarded as one of the oldest forms of art in the world, Warli art is indigenous to India and produced by the Warli tribe.
Through its rejection of contemporary culture, the Warli tribes' style of painting remains relatively unchanged with elements of nature and farming remaining focal points.
Learn the basic techniques of the art style and how they can be adapted to create fusion artworks full of personality. With a demonstration and Q+A from a well-known Warli artist.
Participants are encouraged to attend all sessions.
