This art workshop is focused around the Mandala – the magic circle, the ancient spiral of life. From the womb to life's cycles, and looking into each other's eyes: mandalas are everywhere. Do you see them too? 👁 Together, we will learn how drawing mandalas can be used as a technique to explore our inner worlds. Outline of the workshop: 🔸Week 1 On the first week we will all get acquainted with each other and with the Mandala and its symbolism. 🔸Week 2 Working from the perspective that observing and drawing Mandalas have the potential to ease you into a more mindful, calmer state, we’ll experiment with free doodling. We'll share our doodles with each each other to see how unique but also universal they are. 🔸Work 3 From the free-flowing doodles we explored on week 3, we will identify reoccurring shapes and use them to help you create your own free hand mandala. 🔸Work 4 On week 4 with the help of a straight edge and compass (or circular cut out shapes) we'll explore adding more structure using a grid. Time permitting, we'll also take a peak at sacred geometry and how its principles can allow us build perfectly symmetrical mandalas that reminds of the very shapes of creation, where we all came from and will return to again. 🌀 The objective of this workshop is to bring like-minded people together to explore the ancient symbol of the mandala while connecting to our inner thoughts and artistic expression in a warm, supportive community. No previous knowledge or skills necessary.
