About the Facilitator
Aditi Jha is a Madhubani artist from Patna, Bihar. Currently, a student of Zoology, Aditi hails from Madhubani, a district known for its exquisite art and having a family indulged in the artform, she too moved on her journey as a Madhubani artist. At the age of 13, her mother taught her the intricacies of art. In her words, “ The parallel lines or the beautiful colours are always a form of meditation for me”. In 2020, when the world was locked in their houses, she reflected on the lack of awareness she had been experiencing about the state heritage and culture around her. She thus started her channel named “Virasat”, meaning Heritage on Youtube, where she teaches the basics of Madhubani paintings.
We hope to see you learn more about the heritage of Madhubani Paintings with us!
