Gallery + Studio: Life Stories in Mithila Painting
For ages 6 to 12 with accompanying adult(s)
Kim Bennett is an artist and teacher whose work ranges across disciplines and includes devotional botanical paintings, imaginary embroideries, and collaborations with kids, poets, and other artists. She holds a BFA from Cooper Union and an MFA from California College of the Arts.
In BAMPFA’s galleries, see how paintings by artists from the Mithila region of northern India combine aspects of tradition with contemporary ideas. Then, use stamps, ink, and drawing on paper in traditional colors as you explore the patterns and motifs in the work of several Mithila artists and develop your own “Life Story” painting with artist Kim Bennett.
