Practicing the art of stories, spirituality and good luck on terracotta is a contemporary twist to this traditional art form. You will not only learn the basics of Gond Art but also contribute to reviving an endangered Indian art form.


Traditionally believed to be storytellers, the Pradhan Gonds used to narrate stories which glorified the king and this was mainly the source of their livelihood. With the emergence of the British, their downfall began. But it was during the early 1980s when Gond Art found its way back.


In the early days, the Gonds painted their walls with lively portrayals of local flora, fauna, and gods. The mystical art form is created by putting together dots and lines. The artists earlier only used colors developed with charcoal, plant saps, cow dung and leaves, but today, mostly acrylic colors are used. Most of the paintings when perceived carefully impart a sense of movement to the still images.

Learn the stories of this art and its basics from grassroots of rural India.
