Monthly Mixed Media Mandalas with Christine Friday October 20th 5:00-7:30
Mandala is a geometric figure representing the universe, based on a circle. Join us for a 2 ½ 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.
September: Layers of nature’s color and shape, and your choice.
October: Fullness, or balance or of course your choice
No experience necessary, just the willingness to be expressive. All materials for your 1st 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 Sept and Oct, we will explore mixed media techniques: creating a background first then, layering images materials and objects as our imagination calls to us. If there is something you really want to work with, please let me know. Feel free to bring multiple images (no larger than 5”x7”) 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.
