SKETCHBOOK INDIA | The Tribal, Temple + Village sketchbook ART Tour Odisha (East India) – February 16 – 28  2018

It is with great pleasure that Catherine Parker Art Tours, welcome you to this new Sketchbook Art Program involving daily painting, drawing as well as mixed media workshops and visits to traditional artisans –

Odisha (Orissa) is a beautiful, culturally diverse state on the East coast of India with numerous Adivasis ( 62 indigenous tribes) groups, some of which are still living in relative isolation.  The traditional weaving and body adornment of the various indigenous groups are a work of beauty, deeply embedded in nature.

This tour combines visits to small villages in the mountainous region of Koraput, as well as the world heritage listed 13thc Konark Sun Temple and the very humble and sacred  Tantric Yogini temple dedicated to the mother Goddess.

We will be celebrating the famous Konark Dance + Music Festival a tribute to the ancient and graceful dance form of Odisha
