In this Advanced Pichwai workshop we will be making Shrinath ji also known as lord Krishna. These paintings are usually used to decorate the temples and are hung behind the deity.
This workshop explains us an accurate method of composing Shrinath Ji's sketch in one of his many forms. This method makes it easy even for a beginner to grasp the composition as it uses accurate measurements.

• Workshop will be conducted over Zoom. If you don't already use Zoom, please download the zoom app on your phone or laptop (easier to sit on a desk with a laptop or with the phone on a stand so you can see the artist paint and follow at the same time and so that the artist can also see you painting. Please sit in a well-lit place)
• Please test audio and video on zoom. Please stay on mute during the workshop so that everyone can hear the artist, please unmute anytime you wish to ask a question. We may also request you to switch off video at some points as the locations where the artists are sometimes don’t have good bandwidth (we have tested and it works fine usually)
