FIELD TRIP KAMASAN VILLAGE

Kamasan is a village in Bali, Indonesia. It is situated just to the north of Gelgel, in the Klungkung regency. Kamasan is of cultural importance in Bali. The various “traditional” styles of painting that are still seen in contemporary Bali, are derived from the Kamasan style, which in turn takes it patterns and motifs from ancient Java. Historically, artists from Kamasan were employed in the many royal courts that existed in Bali up until the early twentieth century. The Kamasan artists still make their own natural paints and use bamboo brushes.
