BATIK ART

Batik is an ancient art which was practiced as a craft. It is the repeated method of waxing and dyeing on the stencils used. Later era the batik art became popular. In this Artists bring the art work on the cloth using batik technique. This is interesting technique where as beautiful too. Warli painting is a style of tribal art mostly created by the tribal people from the North Sahyadri Range in India. Deepa will attempt to merge these two art forms in a unique workshop. 

ABSTRACT ART

Abstract is the modern art method where an artist creates the art piece with multiple colors. There is no restriction for the brush strokes, usage of colors, the flow of colors, shapes etc. The technique used in this workshop where the colors are given freedom to create its own magic. At the end of the day each participant will take a magical art piece created by him or her.

MADHUBANI ART

Madhubani art (or Mithila painting) is practiced in the Mithila region of the Indian subcontinent. This painting is done with a variety of tools, including fingers, twigs, brushes, nib-pens, and matchsticks and using natural dyes and pigments. It is characterised by its eye-catching geometrical patterns.[citation needed] There is ritual content for particular occasions, such as birth or marriage, and festivals, such as Holi, Surya Shasti, Kali Puja, Upanayana, and Durga Puja.

Madhubani paintings mostly depict people and their association with nature and scenes and deities from the ancient epics. Natural objects like the sun, the moon, and religious plants like tulsi are also widely painted, along with scenes from the royal court and social events like weddings

The Madhubani painting tradition played a key role in environmental conservation efforts in India in 2012, where there was frequent deforestation in the state of Bihar. Shashthi Nath Jha, who runs the Gram Vikas Parishad, an NGO, started the initiative as an attempt to protect local trees that were being cut down in the name of expanding roads and development. The main reason behind this was that the trees were traditionally adorned with forms of gods and other religious and spiritual images such as those of Radha-Krishna, Rama-Sita, scenes from Ramayana and Mahabharata and other mythologies. This recognition of the cultural and aesthetic significance of the tress largely prevented them from being cut.
