5th Annual BBT Art Seminar - Vrindavan

The BBT Art Seminar is an annual event launched during Kartika 2007 in Vrindavan. The seminar offers devotee artists an opportunity to expand their skills and receive the specific training Srila Prabhupada gave to his BBT artists.

Veteran artists Dhriti Dasi and Ramadasa Abhirama Dasa will teach the first three-week course. While continuing to paint devotional art for the BBT and ISKCON projects, these accomplished artists have also been successful in the commercial world.
