Mandala Art Workshop #1: The Geometry of the Cosmos; Saturday, October 28 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. $60
It is said that mandala art is a picture of the sacred geometry of the cosmos and reveals the structural patterns of energy of reality, from the smallest particle to the largest galaxy. The introductory workshop explores the origins of this universal art form. We will focus on structure, symmetry and interconnection in the designing of abstract mandalas based on the circle, square, triangle, cross and star. The goals of the workshop will be to focus and quiet the mind, to think visually, and to create interesting and colorful patterns of energy. Only simple tools are used and no prior art experience is necessary.
Mandala Art Workshop#2: The Art of Self Expression: Saturday, November 11 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. $60
Forms of mandala art have been used for millennia to promote healing, wholeness and transformation. In this workshop we will expand the design of geometric mandalas to include more organic and representational forms. We will focus on ornamentation, patterns, color and texture. The goals of the workshop are to add more emotional content to the design and use the process of art making as a meditative act. Workshop #1 is recommended but not required.
