Art: Rangoli Designs

We joined Chestnut Class in the art block to see what wonderful creations they were making today. The class were looking at a type of Hindu art called Rangoli design. This style, also known as Alpona design is a simple dots joining process.

It is a creative art done on the floors of the house or the entrance to welcome the Hindu deity Lakshmi to our homes, since, she represents good fortune. You cannot imagine an Indian festival without a rangoli; it actually sets the mood for celebration and brightens up your home.

We took some pictures of the art class, which can be seen below.
