A celebration of Masks, Puppets and Picture Showmen Traditions of India

Hi all

Yesterday I attended the event "Akhyan - A celebration of Masks, Puppets and Picture Showmen Traditions of India" at Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA)"

They organize several events to promote and aware people about the art of Masks and Puppets of India. I met several crafters and artists there. Some were making masks and puppets, some were making paintings from natural colors. It was a wonderful experience for us (my friend and I) to know their Culture, to know their Art.

In a big hall they showcased the masks and puppets from several states of India. They also showcased the Phad Paintings (These paintings are created using the rainbow of bright colors and subtle colors. The popular themes of the Phad paintings are of Hindu deities, old legends and the stories of the maharajas of the bygone era. Phad paintings are magnificent and its outlines are drawn in block and filled with colors.)

They have a Book Exhibition also on Masks, Puppets and Picture Showmen Traditions of India.

They also have a Nature Bazaar which includes handmade stuff from different states of India.

Event will continue till 20.11.2010. Timings are 11 a.m. - 8.30 p.m. Any one can attend the event.

Hey My friend and I clicked some pictures there. I want to share with you and here are the pics.

Dilli Haat, INA

Hi all

Yesterday I went to Dilli Haat, INA, I met several artists there, they all are National Awardees in the field of Art and Craft. Basically they are called Shilp Gurus.

The whole Dilli Haat was decorated to celebrate the spirit of Common Wealth Games, Delhi 2010. Every time when I went there I enjoyed a lot but this time I enjoyed more than my previous visits there. To meet with Shilp Gurus, to know the art and Craft of different states, I realize how wealthy our India in the field of Art and Craft.

Suddenly I came to know a very unique art there which is called "Sea Shell Craft" from Orissa. I was just stunned to see this unique Art. Artists from Orissa used to carved on sea shells and then paint over it. Carving is so minute and detailed. After carving they paint over the carved part. They also make jewelery from sea shells and various other decorative products. I click some pics. of them and also talked to them about this art.

When clay goes up n down on wheel according to the rhythm of your legs, wow it gives so much calm,cool,inner peace,silence and satisfaction. Everyone should experience this joy.

Chunky Dolls

Hi all

These dolls I made with empty juice boxes long time back. Earlier I uploaded these dolls on and wanted to share these with my blogger friends also. I saw some tutorial on internet (forgot the link) and tried myself. I taught how to make these dolls to my students also. They enjoyed a lot and made beautiful dolls with empty juice boxes according to their creativity and I was amazed to see the outcome from my students. They come up with beautiful dolls and every doll has its own character. My main motive to teach my students how to utilize empty juice boxes which they thrown outside of the school canteen and they inspired a lot. Some of them made these dolls to gift their friends and relatives also.

Dolls I made to teach my students -

Dolls my students made, I really amazed by my students creativity -

Water Color Painting

Hi all

I did water color painting after a very long time,infact its years n years I never did any painting in water colors.

One of my friend did water color painting after watching her painting I really inspired to do painting in water color.

In my college days I was not at all good in water colors,even I was unable to give depth in my water colors works, I was never satisfied with my water colors works.

Now I did water color painting after so many years,keep it in mind that I have to create depth in my work, I tried hard, give almost every effort to create depth.

What u say?

Birthday Card and Present

Hi all

Sorry for writing late. My system was down for sometime n I missed all the happenings in this blogging world.
Meanwhile I made a birthday card and present for one of my blogger friend Spardha and eager to post it on the blog.

She liked newspaper gift wrapping, so I wrapped all her gifts in newspaper, I also made handmade flowers for her.

Then I wrapped all the gifts together in one newspaper and tied it with ribbon.

I did this type of wrapping first time and I love the outcome.
