Khula Aasmaan organised a special art workshop for doctors, to mark International Childhood Cancer Day 2022. This was done at the Dept. of Paediatric Oncology, Tata Memorial Centre, Mumbai.
We had carried papier-mache bowls which were specially created for this art workshop by Gauri Ketkar who is an artist and a craftsperson.
Gauri Ketkar created these papier-mache bowls using old newspapers by soaking them in water and then creating the form of a bowl from the paper pulp created.
The workshop started with Milind Sathe giving a brief introduction about the plan for object painting and the process of making the papier-mache bowls. Chitra Vaidya, an artist and an art teacher demonstrated object painting using acrylic colours. Priti Naik, an art teacher, assisted the participants in painting the papier-mache bowls. Art India Foundation provided the art materials required for this art workshop.
