DOT MANDALA: CANVAS
Sep 13, 2018

Come learn the magical art of making a painted dot mandala. Mandala means circle and represents wholeness that can be geometric and organic in its creation.
Each mandala is unique to its creator so the benefits of learning to create your own mandala can be endless.  Just a few of the benefits include relaxation, increased focus, attention to detail and the practice of mindfulness and patience.

We will start out going over the basics of what a mandala is, paint consistency, how to mix paint and mandala design ideas.  From there we will move on to painting your first prepped mini canvas.  We will work together on the first canvas doing a step by step design.  The second canvas will be designed by you, straight from your imagination using everything you learned.  You will go home with 2 very unique pieces of art.  One for you and maybe one as a gift for the upcoming holidays.

All materials provided  *  No artistic experience needed  *  Dotting Tool sets will be available for purchase

BYOB and SNACKS ARE WELCOME!
