Experiencing Kurumbas Tribal painting style

AS Level students from Bangalore visited the Nilgiris from 12th till 15th July, 2011 to lend their support in One Earth Foundation’s Community service projects.  They closely studied the Kurambas, one of four Primitive Tribal Group (PTG’s) residing on the steep slopes of the mid ranges of the Nilgiri hills.  Among other activities, several students showed keen interest to understand the rapidly disappearing Kurumbas style of painting and participated in 2 Kurumbas Art Awareness Camps held in one the the Kurumbas hamlets.

We are highly encouraged by their participation, support and commitment  towards our Initiative to create awareness and revive this style of painting.
