Folk art encompasses art produced from an indigenous culture or by peasants or other laboring tradespeople. In contrast to fine art, folk art is primarily utilitarian and decorative rather than purely aesthetic. Folk Art is characterized by a naive style, in which traditional rules of proportion and perspective are not employed.
Students will learn different forms of folk art which are prevalent in the country. The course is conducted on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, in two batches, from 10:30 am to noon & 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm. Students can attend either batch. Fee for this course is Rs. 5000 per month (8 classes). However, the timings are flexible and the class can be conducted on Saturday as well.
I have held exhibitions at Mumbai, Delhi, Vishakapatnam and Houston (USA), besides showing these techniques on television. I have been holding arts and crafts workshops (including metal embossing,pottery,sculpture and the concept of 'The Tree of Life') for the last 20 years by the name of 'Creative Art' for adults and kids.
I believe every one has an individual quality that can be fostered not only through spontaneous expression, but also through a wide range of materials to work with and an exposure to contemporary and traditional art forms. I also train people to prepare for competitive creative examinations such as NIFT,NID etc.
