I recently attended a workshop organized by Artry .
It was as if I took an adventure into the beautiful world of art
with charcoals in my hand,
easels in a very spacious room,
remarkable peace in the air and
so many artists and art lovers all around !
As I entered I thought YESS this is it!
This is the kind of place I wish to be in!
There were smiling faces to greet me and all.
Artry is a shared vision of a group of artists
to understand and foster dialogue between artists
and their practice,
a space for in-depth explorations into art.
We had to observe the model
sitting in front of us and
draw with charcoal.
All the necessary material was provided to us.
We were fortunate
that we got an opportunity to learn from the best
. Mr. Ram Chandra Babu
who is an illustrator with Gulf News.
He was kind enough to share with us
some good techniques
while we did a Life Study with him.
He made a perfect use of his knowledge
and enthusiasm to encourage us.
The environment as a whole was unintimidating.
I felt extremely positive vibes,
a sense of tranquility and peace
flowing in my mind and body
with an urge to create.
It was amazing
how all of us saw the subject in a different way.
Each sketch was unique and beautiful.
It was a weekend filled not only with
art and creativity but also fun and learning.
Thanks Artry :)
