The Stories in Art!

Stories in Art are not restricted to any one country or era. We saw these narratives form as cave men rendered stories of hunting and celebration of harvest through simple images. Come explore a plethora of Indian art styles that form a montage of history and fall under the realm of narrative art. Be it the Buddhist manuscripts from the North East, the Miniatures, Folk art like Gond, Warli, Madhubani, Kalighat and more. Create narratives through your own art works after the engaging discussion.

Fees: 2,250/- including all taxes and materials
Date: September 15th
Timing: 11am to 2pm
Age Group: 18 years and above
