Experience the Wonder of Indian Folk Art with Gond Painting

With a history that's rich in culture and heritage, India is a treasure trove of art forms. One such art form is "Gond," developed by one of India's largest tribes. The Gond believe that everything in nature is sacred and inhabited by a spirit. Their paintings reflect reverence for nature and an appreciation of the connection between humans and the natural world. Painters get their inspiration from nature, from the myths and legends of India, or just from their imaginations. Learn about the tradition of Gond and experiment with the designs, patterns and vivid colors used. Leave the second week with your own unique painting and ideas about how you will be able to continue to play with this delightful art form. Mitra Verma has recently emigrated from India. For ten years she held workshops in painting, puppet-making, basket weaving, and more. She is eager to share her love of art with students here who want venture into new areas.
