The workshop began:-
The workshop began with great excitement and hope that would allow learners to learn and explore one of the most vibrant art forms of the era. It began with the host making a special introduction about the mentor, Sattik Halder and his expertise on the subject down the years.
On successful introduction, Sattik took over the session and began by discussing the details of Kalighat Painting and its associated aspects. On sharing a broader view, he began to enact a concept for attendees to better understand and analyse the art form. He ensured to keep the attendees in a well-informed loop that helped them curate and alter their best.
Towards the end of the workshop:-
Under the guidance and supervision of Sattik Halder, a beautiful cat eating a fish image was enacted, giving it all the necessary blends that a Kalighat Painting is well versed with. The attendees co-created the pieces too and in the end received an opportunity to showcase it as well. These attendees were of different age groups responsibly dedicated to learning and exploring new elements.
The Circle Community, as always, was successful in connecting artists and curating a magical and positive vibe together.
