Madhubani literally means ‘forests of honey’ and refers to paintings in a distinct style that capture viewers’ attention with their vibrancy. It is a 2500-year-old folk art from the times of Ramayana originated in Bihar, India.

What we’ll do:

Awareness: Get to know about folk art, its significance, folk arts of India, commonalities in folk art across the world.

Appreciation: Learn about Madhubani as an art form. History, colours, motifs and special characteristics.

Application: I will guide you, step-by-step, in creating a Mandala with Madhubani artwork

Detailed description:

A practical introduction to Madhubani.

I will guide you in drawing a modern version of this incredible, free flowing ancient art form. In this session we will be drawing a gorgeous meditative Mandala. In the ancient Sanskrit language of Hinduism and Buddhism, Mandala means ‘circle.’ Traditionally, a mandala is a geometric design or pattern that represents the cosmos or deities in various heavenly worlds. Mandala painting is a symbolic picture of the universe, the circle that represents wholeness, totality, infinity, timelessness, and unity. While extraordinary as a standalone work of art, mandalas hold introspective meaning beyond their vibrant appearance. Like any folk art, Madhubani shows the psychology of the society to which it belongs; it reflects the morals, values ​​and customs of the region in a very interesting way. The three main themes in this art are religion, social scenes and elements of nature. Looking at these two art forms together, Mandala and Madhubani, a similarity that comes up is the filling up of spaces with symbolic patterns and designs. Both these art forms direct us towards the deeper meanings of creation and mother nature. The symmetry, geometry and intention of one seems to find an echo in the other. So here is looking at drawing a Mandala in the language of Madhubani. A mandala with vibrant fish in an angular, whirling or conventional pattern. Also exploring the thought that a part (of our mandala) represents the whole and yet is complete in itself.

Come be a part of this amazing journey.
