The students were  briefed  about the origin of this traditional art form of   Madhubani district of Mithila region of Bihar, popularly known as Mithila painting or Madhubani painting.  

Madhubani is also a major export centre of these paintings. This painting as a form of wall art was practised widely throughout the region .The more recent development of painting on paper and canvas mainly originated among the villages around Madhubani, and hence it got the name-Madhubani Painting or Mithila Painting.

It was a learning experience for the students wherein they got to know the intricate details and technicalities   of this form of   painting  . Students were provided with stationery items and were trained as to what medium of paint to be used.  Madhubani paintings mostly depict human beings and their  association with nature and the scenes and deities  from the ancient epics.

Madhubani Painting has acquired a state of the art form. The state government of Bihar  has awarded  and recognized  it as the highest form of art.The workshop ended on a happy and vibrant note just like the myriad hues of this   beautiful art form.
