Create mandala drawings using visualization techniques for creative inspiration! Excellent drawing skills are not necessary but an open mind and sense of mystery are mandatory.
Draw upon symbolism from the personal unconscious, and learn about the work of psychologist Carl Jung who illuminated symbols found in the collective unconscious and used mandala-making as a type of art therapy.
Focusing on the transformative aspect of mandala, students can set intention for their own life purpose, explore the greater meaning of existence and/or cultural identity. Environmental themes and our relationship to the Earth are also possibilities.
Artistic techniques such as shading and color blending will be taught, but students are highly encouraged to explore mandala through a personal approach if desired.
Three-class series: $10 ... Class meets on March 15, 22 & 29 from 1:30-3:30.
