Silk Screen Design Workshop with Professor Arularasan



IHS was pleased to welcome back Professor Arularason, Head of Department, Painting, Government College of Fine Arts, Kumbakonam, this July 30th and 31st for a workshop intensive on design for silk-screen printing. 9th standard art students worked with this talented and multi-faceted artist to learn some fundamentals of 2D design. He showed the students how to find the essential elements needed to express an animal in a drawing and also demonstrated how to make a complex animal puppet as a drawing aid.  The workshop concluded with an exploration of shape and the possibilities of repeating patterns for design. The experience was a great jump start for the upcoming silk screen printing project.
