Speaking Scrolls Of Cheriyal

Cheriyal Scroll painting is a unique artform, native to the state of Telangana. These scrolls are painted in narrative format similar to a film roll or even comic strips, and depict stories from Indian mythology and folklore. Join us to hear about the history of this artform, make your own cheriyal paintings and hear a story or two from traditional artist, Sai Kiran!

This event forms part of Summer at MAP – an annual workshop series for kids facilitated by the MAP Education team along with external facilitators. In our first edition, we focus on the vernacular artistic traditions of India and meet the artists committed to keeping them alive!

These sessions have limited seats and registration is on a first come, first serve basis. The registration fee per session is Rs. 200 and you can sign up for more than one session.

We encourage participants with any kind of difficulty related to hearing, speaking, learning, etc. to participate in the workshops. If you are the guardian of such a participant, please write to us at prior to registration and let us know the workshop(s) that is of interest, the nature of the difficulty and the accommodations that may be required. We will try our best to make the necessary arrangements in consultation with you.
