Students will learn about the Indo-Persian miniature painting approach in an intensive, five day workshop focusing on traditional portraiture. Creating handmade paper, preparing the painting surface, mixing colors using gum arabic, applying gold leaf, and painting with tea washes are some of the techniques that will be introduced. Students will also learn how to stylize facial features according to the traditions of miniature portraiture.

Workshop participants will be required to bring in a passport sized photograph (side profile), to use as a reference for their authentic miniature portrait.
