Indian Tribal Art

Gond painting is the name of the art done by the tribes of Madhya Pradesh, a state in India. The paintings are made on walls of homes and depict animals, birds and life around the people, and sometimes stories from mythology.The paintings are stylised and filled with intricate patterns.

Our elementary kids were working on a unit on birds and created Gond-inspired bird paintings with patterns and vibrant colours. Here are some of the kids with their creations.
