Mandala by Joleen L.

Mandalas are contemplative tools for moving between the inner and outer experience — they serve as a link between worlds. When you make a mandala, you resonate with the essence of your deepest self and the collective spirit. Working with this form can restore peace and calm while revealing a symbolic language.  Each class offers unexpected insights, communion, and an opportunity to experience creative flow without judgment or expectation. Class begins with a brief centering meditation, we listen to music and draw for about an hour, and close with sharing our work and discussion.

Each session is different and Lillian covers topics such as geometry, color theory, and concepts behind mandalas. Some art materials are available, but you’re encouraged to bring a favorite art media; collage, watercolor paints, oil pastels, or colored pencils are especially recommended. Come to one or all sessions, as each class is an ongoing exploration of expressive discovery. RSVP the Thursday before each session to save your place. Due to the nature of the class, instructor asks that participants arrive on time in order to participate fully.
