This course has been designed for you to master the art of Tanjore painting. So we will cover each and every step of creating a painting.

The course has been created in a way that you get enough practice and are confident to do it on the canvas.

What You'll Learn

We guide you by teaching you how to prepare the canvas and put the sketch onto canvas.

This is followed by preparation of the gum, jesso and its application.

You'll learn how to get the perfect finish and add intricate details for jesso and how to stick the gold onto it.

Then we will move onto painting techniques. We will go through each and everystroke required.

We'll teach you face painting towards the end, as by this time, you'll have great experience with the brush!
