The practice of painting started in prehistoric times when humans painted on rocks and cave walls, where the oldest known work being 40,000 years old. India records its earliest form of painting in rocks from prehistoric times, in which Rock Shelters of Bhimbetka and Ajanta Caves in Maharashtra are the most elaborate forms. The country also accommodates several other kinds of paintings in India like Madhubani painting, Rajput painting, Mughal painting, Tanjore painting, etc., each with their unique style of execution.
The paintings are also identified based on the medium that the colour is suspended or applied on, like walls, paper, canvas, fabric, wood, glass, clay, leaf, copper, and many more. Oil pastel, acrylic, watercolour, ink fresco, gouache, encaustic, enamel, spray paint, etc. are the type of colours used widely for painting purposes. While bringing light to a type called fabric paintings, humans have been using fabric as a medium for painting for thousands of years, basically since people started experimenting with their clothing materials. One such kind of painting is practiced at the Tirumala Garment Training Center, situated at Yadgiri, a town from the Indian State of Karnataka. The center provides training and employment to several women from their area, making them independent to earn a living. Artisans here not only deal with fabric painting orders but are also involved in some other craftworks like soft toy making, weaving, hand embroidery, etc.
