An incredible experience!!

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  :)
