The technique does involve the dot as it’s main element but also other shapes like the square, triangle and rectangle can be used to make a stippling artwork. Paints and ink can be used to create this kind of work.

Pune-based artist Umakant Kanade’s works gave the children a peek into stippling works using ink. The works included minute detailing of forms using dots. A new and novel perspective on nature with well-balanced compositions astonished the audience.

While trying the technique at the studio, the kids used paints. They began their own individual work after a demonstration using different approaches to stippling was shown- works with very close dots, far dots, using shapes like triangles and rectangles. With some initial struggle, the kids found their way in the stippling arena!
