This course is designed to create the timeless piece of Tanjore painting of Lord Murugan. The essence of this course lies in the adoption of the original methodologies of the artwork followed during the earlier times.
The material kit comprises natural and pure ingredients including gold and gems used in the artwork. The course does not involve any kind of synthetic art materials of modern times like Fevicol, poster colours, plastic stones, or pens.
The resultant artwork will be a 100% natural, eco-friendly, and enriched royal painting of the bygone era.
Size of the painting: 12*15 inches
The course begins with a structured introduction to traditional Tanjore paintings and the fundamentals to be followed by the students.
The course will take students through the processes and materials involved in the artwork. It teaches the methodologies of handling the materials in traditional ways, providing an opportunity to extend and deepen their understanding of the ‘Fresco Secco’ concept in creative development of Tanjore painting.
The true substance of the course is the natural ingredients that do not fade with time. The natural colours react with the lime baseboard to mature and accentuate over time naturally.
This course will enable the students to experience the royal traditional art in its original form. The final artwork created will contribute to the revival and promotion of the fading authentic royal art form.
