Mosaic Gond Painting!

Featured in Times Republican.
Featured on cool stuff art gallery

Gond Painting in India is an ancient tribal art dating back several hundred years. The Gond tribe painted the walls of their mud homes with pictures to mark important occasions such as weddings, birth and the harvest. Gond painting has no borders or rigid themes and is done with very bright colors. The basic form is filled with tiny dots and dashes.

All you need is

  • Construction Paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Card stock
  • Paints
  • Paint brush
  • Marker
  • Pencil (for sketching)
For each bird cut 4 pieces (2 wings, tail and body) from different color construction paper.
Glue them on card stock in the shape of flying birds. Draw stripes using marker. Finish with vibrant polka dots using paints and brush.

Enjoy the art!

Thanks so much for visiting and have a colorful day!!
