Monthly Mixed Media Mandalas: with Christine July 13th Thursday 3-5:30
Mandala is a geometric figure representing the universe, based on a circle. Join us for a 2 ½hour 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. July and Aug Choices choices: vibrancy, gardens, summer joy, playfulness No experience necessary, just the willingness to be expressive. All materials for your 1 st 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”.
July and Aug , we will explore mixed media techniques: watercolor, maybe ink, finger paints for embellishing, plus collage options with oil pastel. It is summer, so the medium is mostly up to you. If there is something you really want to work with ,please let me know. I will be sure to have some on hand and you can bring some of your own too. If you have special natural items or images you wish to use, please bring them along.
We will start the class with a short grounding centering time. The rest of the class session is to create and embellish your 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.
