Mandala is a Sanskrit word that means circle and represents the Universe or Completeness. These repetitive patterns are found in nature everywhere; in flowers, tree rings, the Sun, fruits and more.
Mandalas are an ancient part of every culture, so there is no religious or cultural resistance to drawing them.
In this 2.5-hour guided session, you will learn concepts and techniques to draw and create your own Mandala with easy patterns and steps. No prior knowledge of art required.
Benefits: Creating a Mandala with patterns is an art relief known for its meditative and therapeutic effects. Mandala takes your mind off other things, offers a chance to relax, helps in hand-eye coordination, and stimulates creative thought flow.
Take away: All art works created by participants along with practice sheets.
Mandala Artist | Acton, Massachusetts
I live with my husband and two little kids in North Acton, Massachusetts.
I am a self-taught Mandala artist. I started drawing Mandalas even before I knew what they were. During my childhood days, I doodled on any piece of paper lying around. Some of those early childhood doodles were precursors to the Mandala art that I create now. Drawing mandalas has always given me a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment.
Making mandalas is very therapeutic, meditative and addicting. What I drew on papers during my childhood days has taken a new form in different medias like canvas, wood, ceramic, etc… All my works are created by hand with lots of passion and love. I enjoy experimenting with intricate designs while creating mandalas.
I take inspiration from nature and everyday things and visualize the Mandala design in my mind before transferring it on to the canvas. Mandalas always start at a center point and from there it radially emerges with various shapes, lines and swirls. It takes many hours to create the intricate Mandala design. The repetitive process involved in making Mandala is truly magical and I am always mesmerized with the result.
