Activity Description:

One of the most creative medium in which one can express is through painting and various types of painting mediums can be used to present thoughts on various surfaces, especially in textiles. Fabric painting can be used to decorate everything from clothing to home furnishings like curtains and tablecloths. It opens all sorts of possibilities for creative expressions, allows you to create unique one-of-a-kind works of art, and it isn’t hard to do. It is possible to paint any fabric, but tightly woven natural fabrics like cotton and silk are easiest to decorate if a crafter is attempting to create images. In this activity, all the participants at the initial stage did a little research on all kinds of folk arts in all the states of India and eventually beautifully hand-painted the respective state-wise folk arts on the cotton fabric. Keeping the end uses in mind all the participants painted the motifs/design on the fabric. The activity was very beneficial for the students as it was all about creativity, and as young upcoming Indian fashion designers, students must know about Indian art so that they can use their research and this activity’s experience in the future in designing.
