African Art has played a significant role in shaping the culture and history of the world. The belief that Africa is the cradle of the history of mankind is virtually unshakeable.

Other details

Rock Art is centuries old, while shell beads fashioned for a necklace have been recovered in a cave of the southern peninsula of South Africa that are 75,000 years old.

The human figure has always been the primary subject matter for most African art; we will be focussing on tall stick ‘dancing’ figures for our painting in the African Art workshop.

The figures are dynamic and elongate, and the colours are mostly red, white, grey, and black. Many warm tones ranging from red to yellow are also used. Most of the 'dancing' figures are decorated with unusual patterns and festive clothing.

Participants will work with acrylic colours, metallic colours and cartridge sheets in the African Art Workshop.


Coffee Essence Workshop is basically coffee painting. Fabulous compositions can be made with just coffee and water on cartridge sheets.

The intriguing factor in this art form is how a simple coffee concoction is used to derive different tones, get various patterns in place and finally it sums up into an art work.

Other details

The workshop will show you how coffee can be used to create anything you desire from abstracts, graphics, and landscapes to even figurines!

After an introduction to coffee art and the scope as well as limitations of this medium, the participants will work on a landscape which will be a common composition for the whole group.

Trishna is now a full-time professional painter pursuing her passion to create and explore to the fullest. She says, "It’s a road less travelled but a journey that I look forward to everyday."

Trishna also conducts painting workshops across Mumbai.
