About the Event

FOLK by Discovery of India brings this 6-days workshop to explore the almost extinct art form of Chitrakathi paintings from Maharashtra. 'Chitrakathi' (meaning story in visuals) is a 300 year old storytelling art in which mythological stories are narrated musically using the paintings. Gangawane family is the one who has been preserving the artform despite all odds since centuries. It is our pleasure to have artist Eknath Gangawane from the torch-bearing family to share the techniques and tradition of the art with us. The workshops are a humble effort towards helping the art and artist sustain.

*The session will be facilitated by Vinati Bhatt, artist and founder, Discovery of India Design

The 6-days session includes -

  • History and tradition of Chitrakathi
  • Variety of top and bottom borders used in the paintings
  • Animals depiction
  • Male and Female forms
  • Variety of trees as per the stories and narration
  • Different kinds of Ornaments 
  • The placement and decorum of characters, differentiation of characters based on their clothes and ornaments.
  • And much more as it is an interactive session where you can put your questions directly to the artist. Also, the artists love to share anecdotes and details about their family history into arts, culture and more.


  • A directory of all the elements used in 'Chitrakathi'. It is kind of a Mini Craft Documentation.
