ArtLight Global is a collaboration of two Fulbright Colleagues, Kate and Deepa. They met in India in 2016 at a Fulbright Conference in Jaipur. After giving separate presentations on the educational panel, they realized they shared common interests in the exploration of math, art, and social emotional practices. When the two reconnected in Washington, DC the idea for ArtLight Global was born.
In 2017 ArtLight Global traveled to Bangalore, India to work in collaboration with Parikrma Foundation to conduct their first international workshop with a focus on math and art. Below you will see the results of the week by demonstrating how all of the students used proportion and estimation to create enlarged self portraits from photos. Students also demonstrated their skills in understanding ratios by learning to mix paint colors from a limited palette which allowed them to tell an expressive narrative through pattern, color, and symbolism.
