About Indian Miniature Painting
Traditional Indian Mughal Miniature Painting is a classical form of Indian art which evolved in the era of Mughals to depict life as beautiful form of aesthetic art. Hence, with reason, it is also termed as an alternative source of history. It developed in India under the patronage of Mughal emperors with Persian influence but declined with Aurangzeb as he did not encourage it. Now the knowledge of this art is limited to a small number of artists in India, mostly located in Jaipur, Rajasthan.
About the workshop
This is an introductory 3 hours hands on session, where you will learn the elements of miniature painting in form of colouring, shading and embellishing the painting as a part of this experience. We will be focussing on one aspect of the painting. You should be able to accomplish a beautifully intricate, piece of miniature art all done by yourself under Shalini’s guidance. You need not have prior experience.
