About the Workshop:
India has a rich tradition of folk arts, one of the most popular being Gond art. Gond paintings are a form of painting from folk and tribal art that is practised by one of the largest tribes in India with whom it shares its name.
The word “Gond” comes from the Dravidian expressionkond, meaning “green mountain”. In the Gond belief system, every hill, river, lake, tree, and rock is inhabited by a spirit and therefore sacred. Gond paintings are fascinating as through them, artists express their faiths and beliefs, world view, their visual expression and sense of identity.
In this art form, lines are used in such a way that they convey a sense of movement to the still images. Dots and dashes are added to impart a greater sense of movement and increase the amount of detail. The use of bright vivid colours such as white, red, blue and yellow brings the paintings alive.
Participate in this Gond Art Workshop and get a chance to appreciate the art form anew. Create your very own Gond Art masterpiece on canvas/cartridge sheets with acrylic colours.
