Monthly Mixed Media Mandalas: with Christine
Mandala is a geometric figure representing the universe, based on a circle. Join us for a 2.5 hour session, for a time of creating, reflection, and discovery. Mandalas are used by the Tibetan monks and native peoples as a way to connect to spirit and be and express peace.
Each month we will create a mandala based on a particular theme.
April choices: showers, birthdays, unfolding, May choices: blooming, moms, migration.
No experience necessary, just the willingness to be expressive. All materials for your first session are provided, adding some embellishment of various forms for fun and joy. Come join us for the ahh moments. Square sizes will vary, no larger than 12” x 12”.
In April and May, we will explore basic mixed media techniques: watercolor plus ink in April and layers of media in May, to create a circular mandala-like design for relaxation and calmness.
We will start the class with a short grounding centering time. The rest of the class session is to create and embellish your fluid mandala with guidance. Also you may bring in your own items, photos, small found objects and small natural items.
Sign up for one month at a time and return throughout the year. Repeat participants welcome. Take a break for a reflective and creative time working with a variety of materials.
