As part of the weekend at the park series, Sundaram Finance will organise a Warli Painting Workshop on April 28 . From 3.30 p.m. to 5.30 p.m. This will be held at the Nageswara Rao park, Mylapore.
The workshop is open for children in the age group 11-14years.
Children will get to learn painting on a cotton duppata that they can take back as a token of their love and affection for their mothers, sisters and cousins!
Warli painting depicts landscape using geometric designs like squares and triangles. Dots and crooked lines are other designs that make up the units of their composition. Colours used are usually white against earthen colours.
Warlis, a tribe in the hinterland of Maharashtra decorated the walls of their village homes with this folk art.
The workshop is open to the first 35 callers.
To register, call 99414 98698 between 9 am and 5.30 pm.
