Brush up your artistic skills and join us for a fun mixer as we sip on cocktails and colour outside the lines of a few popular artworks by contemporary Kalighat artist, Kalam Patua, from the MAP collection. Begin spring with an art-for-all colouring event facilitated by the museum’s educators – Shilpa Vijayakrishnan and Shubhasree Purkayastha.
Characterised by bright colours and long, bold, sweeping lines, the Kalighat tradition evolved as a unique genre of Indian painting in 19th-century Kolkata. With a healthy dose of art history, colouring, and cocktails – stirred, shaken, tossed, and muddled – we will delve into the world of Kalighat paintings in this session.
