Creating Powerful Flower Mandalas (online)

Online event

$15.00

This is an ongoing twice-monthly online meetup. During each 2-hour session, we will draw a specific flower and learn the legends and myths associated with it. Each culture has a story about how local flowers first appeared and their meanings. I will show you how to draw each flower and then turn its bloom, buds, leaves, and seeds into a mandala. I encourage you to sketch in pencil, then use watercolor pencils or add watercolor. I have studied drawing, painting, mandalas, and flowers, and have spent many happy hours at the Denver Botanic Gardens drawing and snapping shots of colorful flowers. Ralph Waldo Emerson, a poet who lived in the 1800s, famously said: “The earth laughs in flowers”. I know that both flowers and making art keep me smiling.

15.00 per 2-hour session or 25.00 for 2 sessions. I'm currently scheduling these sessions from 10 am -12 pm on Saturdays but I am open to other potential weekend times.

For each of these classes, you will need a protractor, mixed media sketchbook (I like the Canson ones), pencils, eraser, nicely shaped acrylic brushes (good craft quality are fine), watercolor pencils, and/or a watercolor paintbox.
