About the Artist:
Fatema is an artist from Mumbai and the subject that intrigues her the most is real life forms that exist around us because it is the birth place of every other artistic exploration and possibility.
She has studied English Literature and Psychology from St. Xaviers College, Mumbai. As an artist, she is largely self taught but has also done a short course in Portrait Painting from Sir JJ school of Arts, Mumbai. She is pursuing art practices like acrylic painting, oil painting full time.
The quality most appealing to her about acrylics is the medium’s nature to be fearless.
In this 3 hours workshop the artist will guide the students on how to mix colours, how to lay strokes on canvas, how to plan and execute an idea, acrylic techniques.
The participants at the end of this workshop will have a painted piece of ‘breakfast plate’ and the knowledge to paint a piece using acrylics.
