Kurumba Painting Workshop

A Kurumba painting workshop was held at the Bee Museum on the 26th of September under the guidance of Krishna, a Kurumba artist from Vellaricombai. Around 20 participants watched on as Krishna demonstrated the intricate strokes used to create these unique paintings.This conventionally established art form is done using natural inks that are collected from forest plants. After the demonstration, participants were given a chance to try their hand at the Kurumba painting technique. In the end all the work done by the participants was judged and the piece done by Ms Tamilarasi from the Lawrence School, Lovedale was awarded a prize for the best depiction of the Kurumba style of painting.
