GOVARDHAN PUJA-ANNAKOOT PAINTING WORKSHOP WITH JAYESH SHARMA
DAY: 4th October, 11th October, 18th October and 25th October, Sunday
Time: 09:30 pm to 11:30 pm IST / 09:00 am to 11:00 am PST
This will be a two hour class over four Sundays and will be conducted over Zoom - adults or children above 14 years can join.
Jayesh Sharma will guide you on how to create the sketch and painting; explaining the motifs and story behind the scene. Annakoot or Govardhan Puja is celebrated on the 4th day of Diwali in which we offer the deity a mound of cooked grains and other food items as gratitude. It is one of the important festivals for Krishna Devotees which tells how Shrinathji lifted the Govardhan mountain with his little finger to protect the residents of Braj from the storm caused by Rain God “Indra”.
Materials that you will need:
• Paper Size: 16 X 20 inches (Bigger than A3 and slightly smaller than A2).
• Poster colours (preferred, if you don’t have access to poster colours, you can use acrylic colours).
• Brushes (size 0 to size 4/5), water and palette for mixing.
• Black pen for outlines (not mandatory, can outline with brush and paint too).
• Pencil and rubber for sketching.
We hope you can join us to support the arts and artists.
Terms and Conditions:
• Details to join the zoom call and a calendar invite will be sent on Fridays, a day before the workshops once we receive payment (please don't select the option for COD).
• The workshops are attended by beginners as well as others who may already be acquainted with art hence we will keep a pace that everyone is comfortable with.
• We will share a recording of the workshop after the workshop, so even if you miss anything please don't worry as you can still follow again from the recording. We will keep the recordings for a week, please download after the workshop.
• The artists mostly speak in Hindi, Memeraki team will be moderating and translating.
• 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).
• We will also create a WhatsApp group for easy communication on the day of the class. The group will be deleted a couple of days after the class. Please also join our Facebook group to keep in touch with us and other participants https://www.facebook.com/groups/1632293370227782.
