Mr. Suman began the workshop with a brief background about how he got interested in this art form and he also explained a brief history of Mithila art. The participants were then involved in a lot of activities which included basic Mithila art drawing and piggy bank painting among others. The children emerged themselves in the activities and it was especially interesting to see them do Mithila art in Dutch house cutouts.
