Ever thought of spending the summer on a tour where you not only get to experience nature’s beauty but also capture it on your canvas? Well, city-based art activity centre Ayatana run by Art2Day Gallery has come up with a unique art tourism workshop called Konkan Calling for art and nature lovers. The workshop starts from May 30.The four-day workshop will have well-known art master Milind Mulick take the participants through an arty voyage with the scenic Konkan as the backdrop. “The idea is to go to a scenic local spot and get the maximum out of its beauty through the brush of an artist,” says Mulick.
A highly popular concept in the West, this outdoor activity, known as art tourism, gives individuals an opportunity to learn a few tricks about painting while enjoying the beauty of nature. Mulick, who has been conducting such workshops in India and abroad says that art tourism has picked over the years as both professional and amateur artists from all over the country are participating in big numbers.
Mulick’s workshop, however, is not open to those below 13 years of age. “The location where we are conducting the workshop is very picturesque with a farm on one side and typical village backdrop on the other. Sitting between stunning locations like Murud and Harne and brushing up up your painting skills will act as a refreshing experience for all the participants in this unique camp,” concludes Mulick.
The workshop will take place in the evergreen Harne beach, near Dapoli, and the gallery will arrange for transport, food as well as stay.
