Due to worsening weather conditions, we have made the difficult decision to cancel today's programming. The Museum and galleries remain open today.
Mandalas: Meditative Drawing

Mandalas: Meditative Drawing

Students will explore the origins of the mandala (radiant) and the significance of these designs to various cultures. Students will explore techniques to still their minds and bodies in order to relax and allow mandalas to flow onto paper. Students will experience the joy of learning the construction techniques that allow the inner self to manifest in a physical design filled with color and intricacy. All necessary materials will be provided, but, if you have a journal or your own pens and colored pencils that you enjoy using, please bring them. Instructor will also discuss journaling with mandalas to draw even deeper benefits from the techniques. In addition, class will have an opportunity to view Doris Duke’s Shangri La: Architecture, Landscape, and Islamic Art and will explore the tradition of mandala use in art.
