Sand Painting and Rangoli presented by Shakun Maheshwari

  • Savage Public Library 13090 South Alabama Ave. Savage, MN 55378 United States (map)

Join us at Savage Public Library with Shakun Maheshwari who will be teaching Indian culture, history and celebrations.

Registration is required and opens March 13th at 6pm

Participants will be exploring the uses of temporary art, or art made from chalk, sand, or rice flour.  Rangoli designs are a temporary floor art that people create and redo on a daily basis in India in order to bring good luck and happiness to the home.  Create stylized rangoli designs with flour or colored sand, which can be displayed temporarily or transferred to paper.  For instance, colored sand can be “painted” to make a Mandala on paper.
