Easy Craft for children – Madhubani Art

There are so many different ways to keep children engaged and happy. And,there are so many creative people doing just that! To teach children a craft that is unique to India, and making them aware of the country’s sustainable,rich art  is true learning, don’t you think? I have enjoyed my conversations with Ihitashri, founder of MITHILAsmita, an organization that promotes Madhubani artists. I have always felt that students should be encouraged to present their projects using traditional folk art, rather than standard PowerPoint Presentations.So,today am sharing a step-by step tutorial on creating a simple,Madhubani art.
