#SocialCurates: Mandala Dot Art Jam

#SocialCurates: Mandala Dot Art Jam
by Bangalore Drawing Room

Painting and Fine Art workshops during the weekends have been a trend in the Bars of Bangalore and Social brings an edge by adding a twist — A Mandala Dot Art Workshop, for the first time!

A calming and relaxing exercise to paint mandalas using the dot art technique — this evening is all about colours, a blank canvas, food, friends & music!

The workshop is open for audience of all ages. No previous experience needed so beginners and amateurs in painting are most welcome! The organisers give you a glass to sip, a brush to dip & all the guidance to paint your mandalas on canvas with acrylic paints. The evening would involve painting numerous small canvases with detailed dotted Mandalas, a spiritual & ritual symbol representing universe. Many people and cultures have vouched for the mandala’s intrinsic meaning — Buddhists, Tibetans, and Hindus have all derived meaning from the mandala and its captivating beauty.

Artist Snehal Patil, founder of Bangalore Drawing room, says “Art is a spontaneous expression that resides in all of us & must be provided with a creative outlet. Many of us have not explored our creative side and that’s simply because we never had a chance to. With these workshop series, we aim to help this situation”

Kaapi with Kuriosity


Footloose on a tiled trail
Exploring repeating patterns

Speaker: C S Aravinda , TIFR – Centre for Applicable Mathematics

kaapi-with-kuriosity-footloose-on-a-tiled-trail-exploring-repeating-patterns-at-jawaharlal-nehru-planetarium-bengaluruC S Aravinda
obtained a BSc in Physics, Mathematics and Electronics, and an MSc in Mathematics, from Central College, Bangalore University. He obtained a PhD in mathematics at the School of Mathematics of TIFR, Mumbai, where he worked on the dynamics of geodesic flow in negative curvature. He served as visiting faculty at the State University of New York, Binghamton, and was a faculty member at the Chennai Mathematical Institute before joining the TIFR Centre for Applicable Mathematics, where he is currently an Associate Professor. His main interests are in the geometric, topological and dynamical aspects of negative curvature. Outside of his research, he has translated The Man Who Knew Infinity, a biography of Srinivasa Ramanujan, into Kannada, and is the Chief Editor of the newly launched quarterly math magazine Bhāvanā.

Regularly repeating patterns are commonplace around us, on tile-laid pavements, on tapestry designs, on window grills, on rangolis and so on. Exploring newer and newer basic patterns to create novel designs has fascinated mankind for centuries. This talk begins by looking at the seemingly simple problem of tiling a flat floor by polygonal shapes and takes on a journey telling the story of how it leads to certain intriguing but as yet unresolved questions like finding out how many different convex pentagons are capable of tiling the plane. Along the way, one gets to hear about Penrose’s aperiodic tiling, the Honeycomb Conjecture and an interesting connection with the study of crystalline structures.

Kaapi with Kuriosity is a monthly public lecture series organised by the International Centre for Theoretical Sciences (ICTS-TIFR), in collaboration with the Jawaharlal Nehru Planetarium and the Visvesvaraya Industrial and Technological Museum, Bengaluru.
