Art workshop with Antonio Puri:

Deconstructing Identities via Painting

Monday June 27, 2016

All materials will be provided for this workshop.
All ages for enrollment in the Workshop

Through art, we can subvert the established notions of caste, color, and race.

In this workshop participants will explore skin color and how it relates to the concept of varna. Varna means to cover or to envelope in Sanskrit. It comes from the Rig Veda, an ancient text from India.
