Skill Development of Madhubani Painters

To demonstrate how cultural assets may turn into capital in the economic sense, through a systematic skill development approach for professionalizing traditional art, we undertook an action research with the Mithila painters of Madhubani in Bihar from between 2011 & 2012 with the support of the Planning Commission of India (now named the Niti Ayog).

The research covered 300 people across 3 Panchayats, involved with the age old tradition of Madhubani painting of the Mithila region of Bihar of which, 90% were women.

Based on the identified challenges during the baseline like low awareness of the art form, lack of innovation and diversity etc., the action components were planned. The artists were forst graded based on skill levels to identify local master trainers followed by four months long basic trainings by local exponents on drawing, colour combination, history of Mithila painting etc. for improving the skill base. The exchanges facilitated with contemporary visual artists, new media and design specialists helped improve creativity. Special trainings were organized to make the artists aware of the contemporary social issues and possible use of their art to communicate socially. They were also trained on soft skills like interpersonal communication, leadership skills, business skills.

During the action research, the artists organized their first three days annual village festival. It generated lot of interest amongst the locals who visited in huge numbers and also attracted the participation of the media, local administration and elected representatives.

The action research not only helped evolve a standard methodology of training. It also resulted in a pool of skilled artists and improved skill, knowledge, creativity and innovation and market access. During the concluding participatory evaluation the artists shared feeling hopeful about the possibility of a career as a professional artist.
