African Art: Painting Workshop by Trishna


A painting workshop by Trishna will be conducted at Literati Connect on June 11. Please register by sending an email to

African Art has played a significant role in shaping the culture and history of the world. The belief that Africa is the cradle of the history of mankind is virtually unshakeable.
Rock Art is centuries old, while shell beads fashioned for a necklace have been recovered in a cave of the southern peninsula of South Africa that are 75,000 years old.
The human figure has always been the primary subject matter for most African art; we will be focussing on tall stick ‘dancing’ figures for our painting in the African Art workshop.
The figures are dynamic and elongate, and the colours are mostly red, white, grey, and black. Many warm tones ranging from red to yellow are also used. Most of the ‘dancing’ figures are decorated with unusual patterns and festive clothing.
Participants will work with acrylic colours and cartridge sheets in the African Art Workshop.
