Course Description

Let’s fall in love with color again, all colors! With free-flowing watercolor, and within the sacred circle of personal  mandalas, we will explore the many gifts and the amazing effects color has on us. We’ll experiment with color in the chakra energy system, the possibility of the healing power of color, the sound of color, color in nature and wherever color takes us. Color is so much more powerful than we really know. Beginners are always welcomed and supported in our mandala circle. We are all devoted to having fun as we continue to learn and practice watercolor and mandalas.

Bring to the first class: One round watercolor brush (Simply Simmons is good, size 6); watercolor pigments (either a Prang palette or small watercolor tubes with a portable, lidded rectangular palette); a pad of watercolor paper (Strathmore 11”x15” or 12”x12”) or bring whatever you have. More materials will be discussed at the first meeting.

LATE SPRING 2017

MANDALAS FOR PERSONAL AND GLOBAL PEACE

6 Thursdays:  April 20 – May 25, 2017

class1016Course Description
With free-flowing watercolor, and within the sacred circle of mandalas, we will explore the journey to peace for both ourselves and the planet, creating peace symbolically within our own mandalas as well as our circles of influence. What are the attitudes we hold personally and globally which produce peace? Which do not? We’ll paint those and our shadows into mandalas as we learn and practice watercolor, and make personal mandalas from the heart. Meditation and sacred geometry will be incorporated into our journey. Beginners are always welcomed and supported in our mandala circle. We are all devoted to having fun as we continue to learn and practice watercolor and mandalas.

Bring to the first class: One round watercolor brush (Simply Simmons is good, size 6); watercolor pigments (either a Prang palette or small watercolor tubes with a portable, lidded rectangular palette); a pad of watercolor paper (Strathmore 11”x15” or 12”x12”) or bring whatever you have.

COFFEE SHOP MANDALAS

CoffeeShopMandalaTo keep our mandala work going, let’s meet at a coffee shop, or in someone’s garden, have coffee or tea together and do mandalas with other mandala making friends. Bring simple art supplies: small square sketch books with felt pens or colored pencils, or small watercolor supplies. Anyone can join in, but there will be no instruction. We meet for about an hour or so.

Make an “art date” and schedule one yourself. Several groups have met already and more are wanting to. Let me know if you are interested.
