MANDALA DRAWING & PAINTING

“My mandalas were cryptograms concerning the state of the self which was presented to me anew each day…I guarded them like precious pearls….It became increasingly plain to me that the mandala is the center. It is the exponent of all paths. It is the path to the center, to individuation. ”
Dr. Carl G. Jung – Memories, Dreams and Reflections

Mandala in Watercolor Class

“Creating mandalas on a blank piece of watercolor paper is an extremely relaxing and calming practice. Rewire the
chaotic mind through the artful practice of meditative drawing. As Patt says, “You can’t do stinkin’ thinkin’ and draw mandalas. When your mind wanders you make a mark in a place that you did not intend. Then to keep the symmetry you need to make that mark in other areas. It is a reminder to keep your focus on the task at hand. This soothes the mind.”  Materials list provided.
With proper instruction, your blank piece of watercolor paper will transform using a pencil, compass, ruler, eraser, pen and watercolor paint. Discover an inner sense of peace and self-expression. As you work Patricia will explain mandala history and use in religion, decoration, and psychology. You finish the mandala using black and metallic inks

 

 

Dr. Carl G. Jung is quoted to say …“Most mandalas have an intuitive, irrational character and, through their symbolical content, exert a retroactive influence on the unconscious. They, therefore, possess a “magical” significance, like icons, whose possible efficacy was never consciously felt by the patient.” Mandala Symbolism

Mandala on Canvas Paint Party

Often hosted as a Sip & Paint private party (inquire as to details) this mandala acrylic painting on canvas class is less meditative and more chatty. Have fun with new friends filling in a mandala template on a 12″ x 12″ canvas. Watch how everyone’s mandala turns into a unique painting of their own. Choose your colors and add detail. No artistic skill required. No pressure, just FUN! What a great option for a Friend’s Night Out or In!
Generally, this is a two-hour event. All painting supplies are included and the canvases are pre-lined to save time and reduce stress.

Mandala Design & Color

Don’t have time for a full 4-hour Mandala in Watercolor Workshop? (The papers need to dry thoroughly before inking the details.) Well then do what the Modernism Museum in Mount Dora did.  Book Patricia to teach the basic set up, then fill in the designs with colored pencils. Participants can then ink in the fine details on their own time. This 2-hour fun and informative class is perfect for a Sip & Craft. Please inquire.
