Mandala Workshop from Christine of Art That Moves
Mandalas have been described variously as sacred circle, container of essence, engines of change, doorways, portals, mirrors or maps. This class is an invitation to explore Mandala as a way of connecting to your creative spirit. In this 3 hour class you will be introduced to the idea of personal Mandala making. We will work to create several basic Mandalas using different mediums — paint, inks, markers and pastels — in different styles and with different intentions. A beautiful and fulfilling opportunity to express your creativity with this ancient craft!
