“Every canvas is a journey all its own” – Helen Frankenthaler. Art has the magic and therapeutic charm that makes it one of the most practised ways of meditation. Painting is one of the most celebrated art forms in the world. The reason behind the popularity of painting is the relaxing and soothing experience that it provides to the person, not to mention it also helps to energize and express one’s imagination, while also enhancing emotional intelligence.
How does a painting start and what wonders can be done with the help of the colors? Well, these questions instigates one’s curiosity to take a deep dive into the world of painting. To delve deeper into this art form, TCC organized an amazing and fun-filled workshop for the Circle members and invited expert artist Ekta Solanki to facilitate the session.
