Traditional Mysore & Tanjore Painting Workshop

Mysore Paintings showcase exquisite artistry with their refined strokes, intricate details, and skillful depiction of figures. The use of vibrant vegetable colors and shimmering gold leaf adds to their charm. These artworks go beyond mere decoration; they aim to evoke a sense of devotion and humility in those who gaze upon them.

In order to begin, the artist must create an initial draft of the design on the surface. Following this, a mixture of zinc oxide and Arabic gum, commonly referred to as ‘gesso paste’, is made. This paste is applied to the areas of the artwork that need additional decorative elements, creating a slightly elevated effect reminiscent of carving. It is then left to dry.

Anybody can create art. One has to connect with it.

Engaging in artistic endeavors can sharpen and stimulate cognitive abilities. The act of painting, with its attention to detail and precise brushwork, promotes the development of fine motor skills. Additionally, painting as a group activity has been shown to alleviate feelings of anxiety and stress among older adults. By participating in creative activities, older individuals are less prone to depression and loneliness, often experiencing a more positive outlook on life.

We are so amazed to see their potential. AGE IS JUST A NUMBER. Where there is a will there is a way. Do not understimate your strength. Fulfill your dreams with MERU!
