Dinesh
Mohan Lal Kumhar was awarded the Padma Shri for Molela Terracotta. Dinesh Chandra Mohanlal Kumhar's art is in several national and international collections. He's also been to several foreign countries to demonstrate his abilities and promote his items. Both are excellent instances of how dedication and hard effort pay off! Dinesh Chandra Kumhar's family has been manufacturing molela terracotta art plaques depicting traditional Hindu deities for fifteen generations. Dinesh began his apprenticeship at the age of ten, under the supervision of his father.  For fifteen generations Dinesh ji's family have practised the tradition of making terracotta plaques of traditional Hindu Deities. Molela is known in the area as a 'potters village' as there are about 30 families from the Kumhar caste producing pottery.  Dinesh Molela Instagram

Terracotta


Teracotta art has been practised in India for thousands of years, dating back to the Indus Valley civilization. Clay is used to make earthenware, figurines, and other ornamental items. Clay is dried and then fried at extremely high temperatures to allow it to take shape. The artform also has a spiritual importance, as it is claimed in Hinduism that this material uses the five components of the universe: air, water, fire, ether, and earth. States including as Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Gujarat, and Rajasthan have a long and illustrious history with the art form.

Masterclasses are complete pre-recorded courses of 7-8 parts that have been researched and recorded by us at the Master artists homes. LIVE workshops happen in real time over zoom along with the Master Artist and a small group. Live workshops have different levels. We only have a few Masterclasses right now - Lippan art from Kutch and Pichwai art from Nathdwara, Rajasthan and are producing and adding more every month. While we cover more than 60 heritage art and craft forms in our live workshops already.

Foundations- In the foundations live workshops, the workshops are structured to teach you the basic motifs and foundations of that art style , the focus is not on completing a painting but the elements taught in each class are incorporated in a painting and a few different compositions are also taught
