Dr Amita Bagal recently conducted a through fluid art therapy where people could learn painting and heal themselves. This workshop was useful for the people who wanted to learn painting as well as go through a therapeutic experience. Organised by Maharashtra Times Cultural Art Committee this workshop highlighted the importance of this art form and also taught them the techniques of doing it. More than 25 participants - right from the school kids to the senior citizens too, showed their enthusiasm in learning the art form which is quite popular among artists. This is essentially a stress buster and works wonderfully to reduce work-related pressure. Fluid art therapy expert Sapna Oswal taught around 4-5 varied categories of fluid art therapy along with new techniques involved in it.
It is a form of abstract art that uses acrylic paints with a runny (fluid)consistency. The acrylic paints react with each other when combined together to make interesting and visually organic motifs. This type of art is fun for all ages. Fluid acrylics can be used on many types of substrates and in many different forms such as pouring, dripping, swirling, glazing, dipping and many other effects.
The participants tried to take some time out of their daily hectic schedule to be a part of this amazing activity. As there was no rule to draw, the participants were asked to let their imagination free and paint abstract work. Acrylics were used by the participants to create their work. People who did not have any background in painting happily took their painting back home with pride.
