3-day art workshop

- Tagore Society offers platform to 50

Rabindra Bhavan in Jamshedpur has turned into a mini hub of paintings, installations and murals for three days.

An art workshop by Tagore Society started on the Sakchi premises from Friday. Besides professional artists from Jamshedpur, Calcutta and Patna, teachers and students of Tagore School of Arts are also taking part in the camp.

An annual event, the workshop aims to bring the creative best out of talents in and around the steel city and promote visual art. “We have received 50 entries this year. Professionals, students and teachers — all are working on same platform. Each of us are learning from the other,” said L.I. Singh, a faculty member of Tagore School of Arts.

“We are organising the workshop for the seventh year in a row. The idea is to provide a creative platform to all artists so that they can share their aesthetic views,” said Ashis Choudhury, secretary of Tagore Society.

Choudhury added that it was also a rare opportunity for Fine Arts students to learn something from the artists.

On Day One, participants were seen working on abstract and figurative paintings, apart from handicraft like batique and embroidery. Some artists were also working on installations with use of canvas, wooden frames and string. Also, there were ready-to-use abstract mural-type paintings.

The creations in various mediums will be displayed at an exhibition at the Tagore Society on January 10.
