ONSITE: Therapeutic Mandala Intensive

Explore the historical and artistic significance of the Mandala. We'll utilize the geometric rubric of the Mandala to explore modalities of self-expression. We will create complex personal Mandalas to help cope with stress, or emotional turmoil and provide avenues for positive and constructive artistic expression. Learn the history and techniques of mandala design and learn how to put those techniques into practice. From the technical side, you can expect to learn composition and color usage as well as paint application and how to use mixed media materials in conjunction with acrylic paint.
