1. Continuing Art Practice

An art practice involves academic training and creative expressions.
(for this course we consider only creative expressions)

Creative expressions:
In visual arts creative expressions involve two types of concepts
1) Visual concepts
2) Intellectual concepts

As far as intellectual concepts are concerned each individual develops his or her tendency, knowledge and experience. These are based on the environment and culture and the time period he or she belongs. Their concepts will vary from very traditional to contemporary expressions.

The visual concepts have to be developed by understanding one’s own tendency, their psychological and emotional state of being. They should be guided towards realising a style or a way of painting (rendering), which will ultimately lead them towards developing a language of expression. This goal for a learner is achievable by the following method where the students involved will get sensitised towards the knowledge based on their time, space and culture. They can come out with paintings, installations, sculptures, contemporary art, computer based art and performance art etc. The work they produce should have pictorial strength and expressiveness.

The content and approach will be based on the age groups

Materials to bring along: Notebook, pencil, sketch pens and other art supplies.
Levels: 18 years and above
Date: April 16 to 20, May 14 to 18
Duration: 10 half days
Location: Srishti N4 Campus
Cost: Rs. 10,000/- +material cost

3. Digital Storytelling

How can we create and tell stories that go beyond the written word into a realm of moving images? Can using minimal technology enhance the visual capability of storytelling?

Digital storytelling is a fun, educational and interactive introduction to create visual narratives using mixed media formats. We will begin with a basic understanding of how a story idea can be generated using words, props and scenarios. Then, we move on to covering aspects of storyboarding which include designing characters, plots, script writing to post-production techniques.

Using stop-motion animation either through the art of pixilation (embodied storytelling and performance where live actors are used as a frame-by-frame subject), claymation, whiteboard or cut-out animation along with camera angles and timelines, we will give a digital expression to stories which have been created through simple animation techniques using minimal software capabilities.

Date: April 30, May 2 to May 5
Duration: 5 full days

7. Oral & Public History

Hands-on Heritage

How did people live in the past? How did they build Forts and make their tools? How do we know what they knew? To find out come to our "Hands-on Heritage" workshop.

This 5-day workshop will inspire your curiosity and help you learn about how archaeologists collect evidence and how historians interpret them. You will visit a heritage site and a museum and learn how to look at buildings and at objects.

You will travel back and learn how people lived during the time of Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan. Why was he called the Tiger of Mysore? What do the stones of the Fort and the pillars of the Summer Palace tell us about their times?

And you will also learn about ordinary people and the tools they use in their everyday lives by visiting the Museum at Janapada Loka in Ramanagaram.

Like a detective, you will learn how to put together what is left of the palace and collected at the museum and understand the lives of people in the past and their connections to the present.

As a part of the workshop, you will learn to observe, research, collect, and curate a mini-exhibition with photographs and recount the stories of these places.

8. Our Life with Concepts: Introduction to ways of doing Philosophy

This course will introduce you to the way philosophical thinking about knowledge, ethics or, more generally, existence, is done. The focus will be on issues and ways of thinking; however, individual thinkers will be used to illustrate how an argument or analysis is carried out, how concepts are developed. The method would be more like the “conceptual personae” that the French philosopher Deleuze discusses.

We will choose select texts from such personae--Form of life/Wittgenstein, Genealogy/Nietzsche and Foucault, Ethical action/Aristotle/Gandhi, Upadhi/Shankara, House of Being/Heidegger, and so on—and discuss how philosophy as a form of activity strives for self-understanding by becoming constitutive of experience itself. How does philosophy overcome the psychological, social or political obstacles to achieving self-understanding? What happens when thought fails to clarify experience? Or, worse still, obscures it? Is there a form of philosophical therapy?

Equipment: Readings.
Duration: 9 half days
Levels: Undergraduates, Postgraduates
Date: 30th April to May 18
Days: Monday, Wednesday and Friday (4.30pm to 7.30pm)
Location: Srishti Study Center,palace cross Road.

9. Summer, Sky, Monsoon, River.

Seasons and the Elements in Mystic Poetry

As the seasons shift around us, do we sense subtle or dramatic seasonal shifts within? The poetry and songs of the Bhaktas, Sufis and Bauls invite an awareness of the sky, the rain, the summer, the fire, the river... as powerful metaphors that resonate in layered ways with the human experience of love, death, life and longing.

Heightening our poetic awareness and subtler sensibilities, this two-day immersion in the poetry and music of the mystics in the space of an extended 'satsang', will share poems, live songs, video recordings, conversations and sessions of learning to sing these mystic songs ourselves.

The workshop is open to everyone, especially for those interested in Bhakti, Sufi & Baul poetry and singing.

Dates: May 13
Duration: 1 Full day
Venue: Srishti Study Centre
Intake: Upto 20 participants
Fee: Rs. 1,500/-
Facilitator: Shabnam Virmani, Kabir Project
