"Phad painting classes" is our unique interactive online class that enables you to learn the intricacies by the direct mentorship of one of the few exotic artists in the present generation:

  • History and context of art form
  • Basic patterns, motifs and borders
  • The Phad style of visual storytelling
  • Understanding of colors 

We are facilitating an environment for you to directly interact with the mentors and help you have an exponential progress rather than spending time searching and watching multiple videos to learn online.

 The origins of Phad painting can be traced back to 10th century or earlier and it is believed to developed by the well known “Shahpura Joshi family”. The descendants of this family have passionately practised and preserved this art form till this time and age.

This style of painting is a very special genre of Mewar(Rajasthani)painting. At the core, this painting serves the purpose of depicting gods and goddesses from mythological stories, rituals, habits and activities of the royal families and so on. These are visual aids for a special kind of traditional story telling through folk songs and traditional music. These paintings are made over handmade cotton cloth using handmade paints. 

This Traditional Art Learning plan consists of a total of 16 hours of learning extending onto assignments and worksheets to solidify your understanding and skills.This is designed to give you ample time to practice your assignments and the techniques for a week moving onto the next week’s agenda. 

The session has been planned in such a way that people with no background in art would also enjoy the session and progress along.
