Workshop on Arayash (Fresco) Painting

Fresco and other wall painting techniques have been a great means in our country for training the Indian mind for the appreciation of art, acquisition of knowledge and inculcation of religious feeling. The wall paintings of Ajanta, Bagh (in Maharashtra) and Cochin( in Kerela) serve some rare examples for the art lovers. The wet process of Jaipur wall - painting is designated as Arayash or Alagila or Morakasi. Rajasthan has not only preserved but extended this ancient art tradition in a living form. The Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA) organised a 10 days workshop in collaboration with Arch Academy of Design.

This workshop is a part of skill development and capacity building programme of IGNCA. The lead faculty for the workshop was Prof. Bhawani Shankar Sharma, Mentor, Visual Arts Department, ARCH Academy of Design; Former Dean, Faculty of Fine Arts, Prof. & Head, Department of Visual Arts, Banasthali University (Rajasthan).
