Start of retreat: 6 pm on Monday, May 4th, 2009

End of retreat: 4 pm on Thursday, May 7th, 2009

Purpose of retreat: to see and feel the visual poetry of earth- in solitude, in silence and then to find your own expressions with lines, colours, textures, forms and designs. This will be the nature of the three day retreat. It is a process to sensitize and become aware  of various forms and their character.

The process of Art enhances the sense of observation and ‘ways of seeing’, apart from making oneself aware of one’s relationship to the world at large. It nurtures   one to become sensitive to their  own relationship and responses to the environment. The programme is set upon a self exploratory journey of aesthetics and beauty and ways of expression.

Program facilitator: Ms. Nalini Jayaram. Nalini is a freelance artist who is exploring Art’s relation to life and nature .She is also interested in traditional and rural crafts and works with artisans.Periodically she travels to the villages in Kanyakumari and helps an NGO which promotes revival of  Palmyra Craft.
