8th MAY: ONLINE BHIL PAINTING WORKSHOP BY SUBHASH BHIL
Sold OutRs. 750.00
These are unprecedented times - we wanted to do something to help our artists and help the community at the same time. We posted online art tutorial videos by our artists which were really loved by people and encouraged us to initiate live online art classes. Art is truly therapeutic and will hopefully help you as much as it is helping us. All proceeds from the sales of these art workshops will be passed directly to our artists.
DAY: 8th May, Friday
Time: 1-3 pm India time / 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm Hong Kong time
We will be painting this tortoise artwork in Bhil style during the class - Subhash ji will guide you on how to create the basic drawing, colour combinations and the final finishing. At the end of the class we will also share images of other more complicated artworks which you can practice in your own time. Step by step instructions will be given and also shared after the class. You can get direct feedback from the artist during the class.
Materials that you will need:
- Paper (this painting is about regular A4 size, slightly smaller)
- Brushes from size 0 to size 5/6 should be enough
- Colours – Poster colours are preferred but you can use acrylic if you do not have poster colours
- Black rotoring pen for outlines
This will be a two hour class for beginners and will be conducted over Zoom and is suitable for both adults and children above 8. Please note that sometimes the network may not be very good as most artists live in small towns and villages, we will have backup videos and images to keep sharing during the workshop just in case there is any issue.
About the Artist: "Subhas Bhil, Gangu Bai’s son, has been painting for the past few years. He was inspired to paint by his mother. When Subhash became a father, he painted birds with their chicks and animals with their young. When he goes to Jhabua, he paints gatlas, gad bapsi and gal bapsi. He sometimes depicts only the wooden frames of the gad bapsi, or gal bapsi, as they are before the people arrive. Subhas Bhil’s brothers, Dinesh and Rakesh have also taken up painting and their favourite motifs are animal and birds. He lives and works in Bhopal"
More classes will be organised every week with other artists as well, we hope you can join us to support the arts and artists.
