Miniature painting - technique and beyond

when 13 August 2018 - 25 August 2018
language English
duration 2 weeks
fee EUR 700

This 14-day introductory course will focus on the centuries-old traditional technique of miniature painting, from the Indian subcontinent. The course will evolve around preparation of materials, including brush-making, wasli-papermaking, and processing the paints/pigments in a traditional way. Demonstrations will also be an important part throughout the course, which will include different techniques of making a miniature painting (pencil, Siyyah Qalam, Gad’rang, gilding and border-making).

During the course, Aisha Khalid will also talk about the revival of contemporary miniature painting in Pakistan.

Participants who already have experience in miniature painting and know the basic techniques will have more time than “beginners” to integrate the miniature painting in their own artistic production at the end of the course.
