A mural is any piece of artwork painted or applied directly on a wall, ceiling, or another large permanent surface. In the contemporary scenario, Mural painting is not restricted to permanent structures and is being done even on canvas. A distinguishing characteristic of mural painting is that the architectural elements of the given space are harmoniously incorporated into the picture. Kerala mural paintings are frescos depicting mythology and legends, which are drawn on the walls of temples and churches in South India, principally in Kerala. Ancient temples, churches, and places in Kerala, South India, display an abounding tradition of mural paintings mostly dating back to the 9th to 12th centuries CE when this form of art enjoyed Royal patronage. Learning Mural painting through the theory and practice workshop is the objective of this course.
