Ancient India and the art form of Rangoli- Amazing!

Rangoli is a folk art from India in which patterns are created on the floor in living rooms or courtyards using materials such as colored rice, dry flour, colored sand or flower petals. Traditionally, Rangoli is made on a square grid in North India and on a hexagonal grid in South India while Onam Rangolis are typically circular.

We tried our hand at following a couple of grids using chalk on construction paper while watching a demonstration on Youtube. It was trickier than it looked! It’s a beautiful art that we were in awe of!
