The resultant artwork will be a 100% natural, eco-friendly, and enriched royal painting of the bygone era.
Size of the painting: 18*28 inches
The course begins w 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 the 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.
