Kalakruthi Mural Creations is holding a workshop till the end of this month to bring the ancient art form of creating murals to the people of Bangalore.
Although the murals are inspired by the cave paintings of Ellora and Ajanta, they can be made using modern techniques such as cold glass fusion and ceramic sculpting. They can even be treated with chemicals to help preserve them.
Teaching all these techniques to create three-dimensional murals are Pune artists Datta Vaidya and B.N. Mutekar. “We want Indian heritage to be taken forward with this art,” said Kalajyothi from Kalakruthi. She said that the workshop has been designed to teach the participants various techniques to make 3D murals using ceramics, glass, stone carving and cold glass fusion.
Initially, the workshop was only supposed to be held for 10 days, but was extended after many people evinced interest. The workshop is at Kala Kuteera on Shivaram Karanth Road from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Call 9902920134.
