Mithila/Madhubani art--A traditional folk artform of Northern India which has been transferred from mothers to daughters form generation to generation but has gained recognition only in the last few decades. The paintings are traditionally based on mythological stories and pastoral symbols. Even though this art is centuries old, it has preserved its original style and contents in its native land of Mithila. The painting style is well known for its vibrant colors, unique borders, symbolism and mythological stories. This art form has been used in its home region to decorate homes and to invite the favor of the gods. However, its popularity is so widespread that it’s immediately recognizable as ‘Indian’ art. In this workshop, you will learn about Madhubani art not just only as a painting but also learn how to create one to adorn your home walls, coasters, name plates, lampshade , bookmarks and many more.
