Malleshwaram Heritage Art Walk - Plan The Unplanned
Bengaluru was not always this bustling city it is now, till a few years back it was the pensioner’s paradise, a calm and quiet garden city, full of culturally rich hot spots, parks, old temples, food streets and avenues of trees. Maybe the city has grown drastically, there are a few old Bangalore places that still retain the charm. A lovely place to start exploring this is Malleshwaram. It is one of the most amazing parts old Bangalore with markets, temples and a long-standing history and some authentic food places.
This heritage art walk is a great way to explore old Bangalore not with the lens but with the brush, you will learn to sketch the streets of Malleshwaram and learn the history of the place. You will visit a well-known temple and sketch its structure. Stop for some much needed South Indian snacks and filter coffee, discuss the heritage and the sketching.
This art walk is the Kickstarter to all those who think they can’t draw or even the ones who have been drawing for a while and want to explore and learn further all the while exploring and learning about Bengaluru’s history.
Here we learn how to compose, draw natural surroundings, buildings and other landmarks of Bengaluru city with ease. You will learn how to create free-flowing sketches, use pen and watercolor and keep a journal.
We will start by a short introduction to sketching, the value of sketching and how it can help in our fast-paced day to day lives and how it can be used for documenting our travels, thoughts and more.
You will be walking around main Malleshwaram area and doing watercolor sketching. You will learn the basic techniques in observing and eliminating extra details and concentrating on the subject, you will learn basic drawing and watercolor techniques. Then your work will be reviewed and you will be given feedback and constructive help all while having fun, talking discussing the about the place and stopping for filter kaapi.
