Mandalas speak to the soul. They are Art, yet they are more than Art, the same way we are each our selves, and yet we are more than our selves.
Mandalas have been used as art therapy. Mandala Art is considered both therapeutic and symbolic.
Mandala comes from Sanskrit meaning "circle." They are concentric structures that offer balancing visual elements, symbolizing unity and harmony. The design of the mandala is to be visually appealing so as to absorb the mind in such a way that letting the creative hemisphere of our minds run free while our analytical mind takes a nap. That said, we use the mandala as a form of meditation for the purpose of gaining knowledge, primarily the kind that resides within each of us.
While the circle in the centre of Mandala is believed to ground oneself, the shapes, design, colors and symbols reflect the inner realms of the person who is making it.

Next, enjoy a short session where you get to dip your hands/ sponge/ brush in paint to create the base for Clock. Further you will begin practicing patterns on a small grid sheet which will help you create your Mandala and teach you how to maintain uniformity and accuracy. Next, you will watch a demo session where I will work on a paper or MDF clock to give you an idea of the flow.
