Mixed Media Mandalas with Christine 2024 March 15th 5-7:30
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,
center, and be and express peace.
Each month we will create a mandala based on a particular theme:
March : Joy, New Birth, Spring or 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”.
We will explore mixed media techniques: creating a background first then, layering images, materials and objects as our imagination calls to us. If there are materials you really want to work with, please let me know.
Feel free to bring multiple images ( no bigger 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. And some technique ideas and practice. 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 class and return throughout the year. Repeat participants welcome. Take a break for a reflective and creative time working with a variety of materials.
