Pebble art workshop with Unnati

Pebble art

Pebble art is a type of mosaic work that uses natural pebbles arranged to form decorative or pictorial patterns. It was used only for pavements and was the earliest type of mosaic in all areas of the eastern Mediterranean, appearing in Asia Minor in excavated floors from the 8th and 7th centuries BC.

The first pebble mosaics had rough geometric designs, but artists in Greece by the 5th century BC had achieved a degree of technical proficiency that allowed them to create designs and figures with delicacy and considerable detail, as in a series of black-and-white mosaic floors depicting mythological scenes at Olynthus in northern Greece (c. 400 BC). Most pebble mosaics were made simply with dark and light patterns, but a few were multicoloured, such as the magnificent floors from the late 4th century BC found at Pella in Macedonia.

The Workshop Began

Unnati greeted all the participants and thanked them for the Introduction. She first started painting the canvas with blue colour and started making the owl and the trees with the moulds. She continued to attach the owl and the trees in the blue canvas and concluded the workshop by colouring the owl in yellow colour, trees in brown.

Towards The End Of The Workshop

Unnati created a pebble art of an owl flying on the branch of the tree. She painted the owl in yellow colour and the trees in brown. Leaves in green and the wings of the birds in black. All the participants showed their co-created Pebble art to Unnati. The host thanked Unnati.

The attendees were from different parts of the country. They also belonged to different age groups but their love for art brought them together on a single platform. The Circle Community, as always, was successful in connecting artists and curating a magical and positive vibe together.
