Artist Rupam Rahul enjoys expressing her experiences and influences through various forms of art, using watercolor, oil, acrylic and natural pigments. She will share with us the traditional art of Madhubani painting, an ancient art form from India. This art form is characterized by eye-catching geometrical patterns, using fingers, twigs, brushes and pens using natural dyes and pigments. There is a ritual content for particular occasions, such as birth, marriage or festivals. Originally, the women of the family drew paintings on the walls of their home, as an illustration of their thoughts, hopes and dreams.
Rupam will be presenting a playful parrot as a demo using acrylic paint on canvas, and will share with us the history of Madhubani painting.
