(Virtual) Wedding of the Fishes: A Demonstration of Midnapur Patachitra with Artists from West Bengal

In this virtual workshop of patachitra painting by artists living in Midnapur, West Bengal, they will demonstrate how they use painting as a storytelling platform. All paintings (on paper) are done by natural dyes, and the artists will show some of the local plants and flowers they use for making the dyes and sing the song that accompanies the story. Watertown resident Swati Biswas will offer a presentation about this artist cluster and translate the conversation with the artists. 

While supplies last, registrants will have the opportunity to claim a painting kit so they can try the techniques at home.




Registration is required for this event.
