A tribal artist’s illustrations role in primary education – Gujarat

He used to draw pithoras on cloth. When Bhasha started the Bol magazine for tribal children, we invited Desing to draw the illustrations. Desing has not been to school and therefore the stories were read out to him. His illustrations, detailed and spontaneous, became extremely popular with children. The Bol magazine is subscribed by Gujarat’s Primary Education Programme for its 10,000 schools in tribal areas of the state. Since then, Desing draws illustrations for the Bol magazines and cover designs for Bhasha’s tribal literature books.
