Mandala Bodies is a workshop for any level of artist who is interested in delving deep into personal expression and self awareness through the mandala form. Mandala is Sanskrit for circle; in each class we will explore a new circle of the self and create a mandala in response to our discoveries. This is a 2D collage workshop and participants are invited to be creative with their materials choices, including repurposing old drawings, paintings, prints or other ephemera. We will also experiment with one new art technique at the beginning of every class. During the last class we will arrange our mandalas on individual panels to create self portraits that will be exhibited in the Harwood main hallway in the spring of 2019. This workshop promises to be relaxing, personally transformative, and spiritually renewing.
