It teaches us to preserve and nurture Nature and its Flora and Fauna which is the need of the time. It brings us close to nature with the use of Earthly colors like Red and Yellow Ochre and white and organic shapes like circle and triangle

Warli Painting from Maharashtra is among the finest examples of the folk style of paintings that has managed to survive for thousands of years. Warli painting is a form of tribal art mostly created by the tribal people from the North Sahyadri Range in Maharashtra, India.


The Warli tribe is one of the largest in India, located outside of Mumbai. Despite being close to one of the largest cities in India, the Warli reject much of contemporary culture. The tribal style of art is thought to date back as early as the 10th century A.D.

The Warli culture is centered on the concept of Mother Nature and elements of nature are often focal points depicted in Warli painting. Farming is their main way of life and a large source of food for the tribe. They greatly respect nature and wildlife for the resources that they provide for life. Warli artists use their clay huts as the backdrop for their paintings, similar to how ancient people used cave walls as their canvases

About the instructor

Aparna Khale: Born and brought up in Mumbai, Maharashtra, Aparna has always been fascinated by various styles of Indian folk art since childhood, especially attracted towards the Warli style which is part of the Adivasi culture from the border areas of Gujarat and Maharashtra. An artist by passion and fashion designer by training, Aparna took inspiration from the Warli art form into her designs. After immigrating from India, Aparna took a break from her professional life to take care of her family and raise two beautiful children but continued pursuing her passion for art by creating Warli styled paintings and products. Her love for Indian culture and desire to pass on our rich cultural heritage to the next generation, especially those away from India, has inspired her to take on teaching the Warli art form to children. Aparna conducts personalized sessions for children in various age groups to help develop an interest in Indian folk art as well as learn the techniques and the finer details of the Warli art form.
