A workshop on applied arts was conducted in Vismayam College of art& Media by the renowned artist
Mrs.Radhika Ranjith for DID-OUM students on Mural Design, Fabric Design, Stained Glass, Block painting
and collage making in the month of May,2017. The workshop was planned spanning two days(5 th May &
6 th May,2017) incorporating maximum possible practical sessions.
The workshop began with basics of fabric painting. Creativity washed over the fixed fabric clothes,
resulting in spectacular patterns that were colored to liveliness by the students. The noon session
consisted of glass painting session which witnessed exquisite designs and rendering. At the end of the
day, students completed their respective work pieces.
The second day of the workshop started with mural painting. Detailed motifs adorned the worksheets of
students, which were then carefully finished with mural color schemes. Gradually the session
progressed to collage making which provided a provoking brainstorming atmosphere. This resulted in
improved imagination which was further put to use in Block painting sessions. An interesting point was
the use of vegetables to shape as per the desired shape. Towards the end, students came out with
exquisite outputs that exhibited their talents. The workshop was concluded on a very positive and
thankful note by Vismayam Students.
