About the Workshop:

Art is such an amazing representation of culture, don’t you think? It can reflect the traditions, beliefs, rituals, lifestyles, history and even language of the place it originates from. For example, fish is considered to be very auspicious in many cultures in India and thus, fish is also a popular motif in most folk art forms. 

In this mini-workshop hosted byChitrakathii, let’s dive into some popular folk art forms and find out more about them. But don’t worry, this is not going to be a boring theory class. We will draw and colour the auspicious fish of three popular fork art forms: 

1. In  Gond Art  from Madhya Pradesh

2. In  Pattachitra  from Bengal, and

3. In  Madhubani  from Bihar. 

Through drawing these motifs, get the opportunity to spot the basic differences in these art forms!


Flow of the session:

  • A brief overview of each artform 
  • Regions where they are practised
  • The themes influencing each artform 
  • Why Fish is considered auspicious 
  • The basic construction of the motifs in a simple manner 
  • Colours, themes, and patterns 
  • Colouring 


Materials required:

  • A5 or A4 drawing paper 
  • Poster or acrylic colours 
  • Paintbrushes - sizes 4, 2, and 0
  • Black pen 
  • Pencil
  • Eraser
  • Ruler 


Date:  Sunday, 8th August 2021 

Time:  3 - 4:30 p.m.

About the artist:Chitrakathii 

Chitrakathiiis an art initiative by folk artists Manisha and Vandana. The duo has always been fascinated by folk art as they believe that each Indian art form tells a story. Each art form is not only beautiful to look at but it also conveys a whole new world - the culture, history, mythology, and the flora and fauna unique to the region the art form is born in.

ThroughChitrakathii, Manisha and Vandana wish to use art as a means to spread the stories of Indian culture and heritage across India and globally as well. They practice several types of folk art and have conducted workshops for the same, spreading their passion and love for folk art through every student they have taught.
